Performance Studies international Annual Conference invites submissions. The conference theme “OverFlow” takes a reverse view on the political tropes customary in “times of crisis” – “OverFlow” focuses on abundance, transgression, and leakage instead of the usually evoked themes of lack, restriction, and loss. The event takes place in the context of the performing arts triennial Theater der Welt (“theater of the world”), which, in 2017, is dedicated to Hamburg harbor. The organizers invite contributions by both scholars and artists that critically engage with “flow” and/or deal with the various facets of “OverFlow” in performative practices, aesthetic phenomena, and performance art. Contributions may consist of individual papers, panels, roundtables, open spaces, lecture performances, praxis sessions, workshops, performances, installations, etc.
Expires: October 21, 2016
