Dear all
You are invited to this week's laboratory at our Artaud Performance Center (Brunel University London) –

"Shadows of the Dawn:  Migration  and the Indeterminacy  of Community & Immunity"

 18 april     /  14:oo - 21:oo

 Artaud Performance Center-  Brunel University London   / supported by the  Institute of Environment, Health and Societies  / Arts & Humanities

How do we confront a transcultural survival politics and better understanding of migration and hospitality? The aim of these two workshops is to incite debate and practical knowledge exchange between fields  – theatre, social works, education, human geography, political science, ethnography, media arts – on pressing questions regarding notions of “imagined communities” during the current resurgence of ethno-nationalism, exemplified by xenophobic hostilities, divergent responses to the so-called refugee crisis, Britain voting to leave the European Union, the election of Donald Trump, the rise of right wing populism on the European continent. During the symposia-workshops, participants will consider interlinked focal points that deal with community and immunity.

•       Natural History of Migration/Immunity and Biopolitics
•       Racism and Patriotism / Institutional and Systemic Sexual Violence
•      Security, Nationness, Ethno-futurism, and the Theatre of Resistance

The planned activities include scholarly presentations/shorter provocations, workshops and practice-based performances or fieldwork demonstration/film to be presented over the two symposia in April and June 2018. Format and compositional method of the Series are intended to be open and innovative as well: curatorial propositions will be solicited from invited guests and volunteer participants.
