CALL FOR PAPERS, PERFORMANCES and OTHER PRESENTATIONS

deadline for proposals: 15 December 2012

The third ARTAUD FORUM on Theatre and Resonant Politics examines theatre as a site of disciplining bodies towards participation in political regimes – as well as a site in which bodies, resonating with each other, might resist. The lens of corporeal/bodily resonance opens up questions of performance training, spectatorship and affect, which this symposium explores through a series of practical workshops, performances, paper panels, roundtable discussions, and keynote presentations. It brings together international theatre, performance and sound artists, musicians, digital artists, theorists and researchers engaged in creative practices that reflect on major innovative performance traditions of the past century and their impact on current performance knowledge and physical techniques. We invite proposals for presentations that engage with this corporeal-political theme.

Thematic Focus
‘Resonance’ in everyday usage implies a quality of ‘generating significance’: the ability to evoke images, memories, affects and emotions. In acoustics, it implies the intensification of sound, when that sound vibrates sympathetically with its receptor and surrounding objects. A resonant politics, then, might imply a quality of sympathy and receptivity among persons – a mode of being together and being-in-common outside of ideologies. When we resonate with each other we share a commonality that does not do away with individuality and differences.
Recent political events including the ‘Arab Spring’ and the Occupy movement around the world demonstrate the power and relevance of resonant politics. The sympathetic reverberations of Occupy from New York to Bradford and the Arab Spring to the ‘Printemps érable’ of Québec show a sense of commonality that does not rely on identification with political parties, leaders or ideologies. Rather, such events are instances of large-scale corporeal resonance — a sympathetic vibration between the bodies amassed in the public square, the park, the occupied lecture room.
Theatre is an art-form that trades primarily in the shared assembly of bodies, onstage, and in the audience, and is therefore an ideal site to examine resonant politics on a smaller scale. Yet examining resonant politics through theatre and theatrical events also opens up the possibility of the appropriation of resonance by states and nodes of power. The London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony with its spectacle of mass-movement called upon the citizenry of the United Kingdom to ‘move this way’ while simultaneously repressing dissent (the arrests of Critical Mass protestors outside of the stadium gates). Pageants and military spectacles use the technologies of theatre to create a shared corporeal resonance in the service of national ideals. As a form that brings bodies together, theatre can be seen as a technology of subjectivisation, which disciplines, trains and moulds bodies in common.
The symposium and physical theatre workshop are composed of dialogue and performance practice, intermixed with film screenings, performances and installations.
Proposals for performative presentations and papers are welcome, as well as traditional papers and presentations that combine traditional, performative and video elements. All presentations must be no longer than 15 minutes in length.  Curated and organised by Dr Broderick Chow & Prof Johannes Birringer (Brunel University).
