Dear colleagues

Would you like to participate in two laboratories at our Artaud Performance 
Center (Brunel University)? – 
we still have places open,  please contact me if you are interested in joining 
our research guests/artists and some very provocative performance collectives:


"Shadows of the Dawn:  Migration
and the Indeterminacy  of Community & Immunity"


 18 april and 13 june 2018

 Artaud Performance Center-  Brunel University London   / supported by the  
Institute of Environment, Health and Societies  / Arts & Humanities


How do we confront a transcultural survival politics and better understanding 
of migration and hospitality? The aim of these two workshops is to incite 
debate and practical knowledge exchange between fields  – theatre, social 
works, education, human geography, political science, ethnography, media arts – 
on pressing questions regarding notions of “imagined communities” during the 
current resurgence of ethno-nationalism, exemplified by xenophobic hostilities, 
divergent responses to the so-called refugee crisis, Britain voting to leave 
the European Union, the election of Donald Trump, the rise of right wing 
populism on the European continent. During the symposia-workshops, participants 
will consider interlinked focal points that deal with community and immunity.

•       Natural History of Migration/Immunity and Biopolitics
•       Racism and Patriotism / Institutional and Systemic Sexual Violence
•      Security, Nationness, Ethno-futurism, and the Theatre of Resistance

The planned activities include scholarly presentations/shorter provocations, 
workshops and practice-based performances or fieldwork demonstration/film to be 
presented over the two symposia in April and June 2018. Format and 
compositional method of the Series are intended to be open and innovative as 
well: curatorial propositions will be solicited from invited guests and 
volunteer participants.
