Performance Research Volume 2 Issue 3

On Refuge

Issue editors: Ric Allsopp & Claire MacDonald

ISBN: 978-0-415-16180

Performance has ever been nomadic. Many artists have found themselves politically, culturally and financially exiled from institutions, have chosen or been forced to migrate, or deliberately to situate themselves outside accepted structures and sites. On Refuge examines how those conditions affect the work and considers how contemporary performance constitutes the conditions for its own production – and its own survival. The issue will explore ideas about home and exile, site, location and migration – both of artists themselves and of the forms at play in performance today.
