Negotiating Quotidian/Performing the Everyday
April 28-29, 2021
Graduate Student Virtual Conference
(via Howlround and Martin Segal Center)
This conference aims to investigate how performing the everyday has recently changed our perception of and experience in theatre and performance, especially when the everyday is intertwined with technology and mediated experience. Moreover, it confronts the complexity of defining a (universal/generic) concept of the everyday, given that there are cultural, class, and racial differences between individuals, whose everyday do we mean when we use the term?
What role do experts of the everyday play in performing the everyday? What are the ethics that intertwine with the aesthetic of this kind of performance? How have those differences shaped our understanding of both local and global phenomena?
