Performing, Writing Symposium March 2017

Wellington, New Zealand

March 09 2017 - March 19 2017

Performing, Writing: a symposium in four turns is an international interdisciplinary research-focussed event occurring in March 2017, Wellington NZ run in association with Performance Arcade.

This event imagines how a text can be conceptualised, written, presented and figured with equal or more contingency and responsiveness to temporal and corporeal happenings, and vice versa. 

What creative, dialogic, autobiographical or alternative writing approaches might elicit a text that engages with the plurality of affects of an artwork?  How might a creative work be informed, inspired, directed, scripted or critiqued with the same respect for live-ness that unfolds spatially as it does textually? How might these parallel practices inhabit space symbiotically?  How might a new culture of criticality develop in between acts of “performing through”?

The proposal deadline has recently been extended to 15 July 2016 and the event dates have changed since the first posting in April this year.
