Obligations in Contemporary Theatre and Performance Practices

A Department of Drama conference
Date30 - 31 January 2014
PlaceAlexander Building

The University of Exeter’s Drama Department is pleased to announce ‘Obligations in Contemporary Theatre and Performance Practices’, an International PG and Early Career Researcher Conference.  Ranked 4th in ‘The Times Good University Guide 2013’ Drama at Exeter is an internationally-renowned centre for practice and research.  This conference offers an excellent opportunity for PG and Early Career Researchers to present their work and create networks in a supportive, but rigorous environment.

This conference proposes that theatre and performance ask us explore the world that we live within, consider it in all its nuances, and imagine it in all its possibility.  But this exploration comes with certain responsibilities and obligations that we are required to consider as academics and theatre practitioners.  We must question what happens when we meet within the theatre/performance space and how it relates to the world around us. This conference asks what the duties, responsibilities and obligations of all those who meet within the theatre/performance space are, provocatively querying the ways in which theatre and performance matter.

The conference will explore the field of contemporary theatre and performance from the early nineteen-nineties to the present day.  This will include two strands: a consideration of contemporary theatre and performance, as well as training practices and pedagogies.

The conference will begin with a keynote paper from Professor Nadine Holdsworth of the University of Warwick.
