Symposium, ‘Contemporary Performance Practice’, Melbourne, Australia, mid-August 2013

Thursday, August 15, 2013 – 10:00–17:00

Contemporary Practice in Performance is a symposium hosted by the Australian Centre to be held in August 2013. Contemporary performance practitioners and theorists will come together to discuss questions including: •What is the relationship between performance, ecology and the environment? •To what extent is there a gender balance in contemporary performance production? •What is the responsibility of theatre to contemporary Australian culture? •Does a specifically Australian theatre exist? How might we conceive of such a theatre and of Australia? •How does and how might Australian theatre engage with the Asia-Pacific region?
