Dear all:   We invite you to participate in the second laboratory

"Shadows of the Dawn:  Migration   and the Indeterminacy  of Community & Immunity"  -  13 June 2018

at Artaud Performance Center (Brunel University) 

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

Activities include scholarly presentations/shorter provocations, workshops and practice-based performances or fieldwork/film to be presented at our Artaud Theatre – the workshop aims at integration of practice and research.
