International Perspectives on Performance

The group examines an international range of performance work created in response to transnational or cross-cultural movement and contact, with particular emphasis on intercultural communication, ethics of encounter, construction of difference, border politics and territoriality, sites of engagement and conflict, the effects of the processes of globalisation on cultural and political identities, and the affective work (or cultural and political 'enactment') of nationhood and belonging.

The group is interested in various performance contexts, from large-scale spectacles to more traditional theatrical settings.

Key research themes for 2010-11 include:

1. Traditional and post-traditional performing arts in the modern world,

2. Performance and asylum

3. Globalisation and itinerant performance.
