CfP – Theatre Ecologies: Environments, Sustainability, and Politics

January 31

Performance in Public Space working group, IFTR 2021

Performance in Public Spaces Working Group
“Theatre Ecologies: Environments, Sustainability, and Politics”

International Federation for Theatre Research, July 12-16th, 2021
Abstract deadline: January 31

The International Federation for Theatre Research has released a call for papers that examine how “subordinate groups use performative methodologies to challenge the ecologies of public space.” Applicants to the Performance in Public Spaces Working Group are encouraged to submit work on protesters’ use of public space in highlighting, resisting, and challenging “social, political, and environmental ecologies.”

The working group is interested in the following questions: “How do artists, activists, and the public ecologies collide through performative, digital, social, and cultural statements of protest? How do individuals acting on the sidelines of social and environmental ecologies use performative means to renegotiate social power structures?”

While not limited to these topics, the CfP solicits papers, performative interventions, or participatory workshops that respond to the following:

The Black Outdoors
Ecologies of Public Protest
Covid and Anti-Black Violence
Performance and Political Activism
Performing Climate Change
Feminist Temporalities
Anti-Colonial and Decolonial Performance Practices
Performing the Anthropocene
Ecologies of Rupture
Ecologies of Site-Based Performance

While based in Galway, the Performance in Public Spaces Working Group welcomes new members from all geographical locations (and all career stages).

The deadline for abstracts is January 31. If accepted, finished papers (max. 2500 words) will be circulated to panelists and discussants in advance of the conference. The deadline for papers is June 15.
