The Centre for Contemporary and Digital Performance at Antonin Artaud 
Performance Centre Brunel University, London  ARTAUD FORUM 3: Theatre and 
Resonant Politics International Conference-Workshop on Theatre Praxis Saturday 
March 23 - Sunday March 24 2013
A two-day conference on theatre, the body, and politics, held at Brunel 
University’s Antonin Artaud Performance Centre.
 ‘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. 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 these movements 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, across networks. 
 Through the lens of corporeal/bodily resonance this symposium-workshop opens 
up questions of performance training, spectatorship and affect. The event 
features practical workshops, performances, paper panels, roundtable 
discussions, and keynote presentations. It brings together international 
theatre, dance, 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 & physical techniques.
