This two-day conference is an initiative of the Performance and Asylum Research Network, one of the major projects of the Centre for International Theatre and Performance Research (CITPR) at Royal Holloway.
The event will facilitate scholarly and creative exchange, investigating ways in which performance might respond to and engage with asylum seekers, refugees and other unauthorised or irregular migrants in a globalised world. Speakers will address a number of performance forms, including professional theatre, community and applied theatre, film, site-specific and public space enactment and activism.
