Asylum and Displacement in the Twenty-First Century: Performing Community, Crisis and Belonging

Posted on 16/04/2012

BondiBeachRefugeeLifeRings20-21 APRIL 2012, ROYAL HOLLOWAY, UNIVERSITY OF LONDON

Keynote speakers: Professor James Thompson (author of Performance Affects: Applied Theatre and the End of Effect, 2009) and Associate Professor Prem Kumar Rajaram (co-editor of Borderscapes: Hidden Geographies and Politics at Territory's Edge, 2007).

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.
