On 6-9 July 2016, Performance Studies international travels to Melbourne Australia. Join us for an exciting event on Performance Climates with keynote addresses from Bruno Latour, Rebecca Schneider, and Peta Tait. Call for papers and more information at: www.psi2016.com. Deadline for submissions is 1 December 2015.
Performance events have long served as potent sites for the creation of atmospheres and affects. Today, performance arts and inter-disciplinary scholarship are increasingly reflecting on the climactic conditions within which societies function, and under which life can best flourish. Activism, art-science collaborations and new theatre aesthetics provide provocative means of interpreting and acting upon such circumstances. And innovative research methodologies and new conceptual paradigms offer ways of re-thinking this radically inter-connected world across many scales of human and non-human activity. We invite papers and performative presentations exploring how performance creates, illuminates and participates in climates of all scales and compositions.
