John Berger Now

 

12-13th September, 2017 School of Humanities, Canterbury Christ Church University.

 

The Conference:

‘The death of the artist is a dividing line’ wrote John Berger in 1966. ‘Every artist’s work changes when he dies. And finally no one remembers what his work was like when he was alive … [His work] will have become evidence from the past, instead of being … a possible preparation for something to come.’

In comes I, says Robbin to Bobbin. There were three Straw Bears and the little one said, rough music! Will the Phantom of the Opera feature in the Scottish play? This cold night will turn us all to fools and morris dancers: hocus pocus, and Faustus must be damned. There were three caskets, and only one contained the liar’s whetstone. Oh yes, there is a doctor to be found at the Hawk’s Well. Out, little spear, if herein thou be! What’s the time, Widow Twankey, at the Common Riding of the Valkyries? A knot, a knot! Waly waly wallflower in the eye of the sun, up and down and around the town. There were three oranges, my true love to see, but ’tis the foul fiend Flibbertigibbet. Surely he is a Puritan, for he has cast out Jack in the Green.

Stages in Transition: South Asia and the Diaspora

 

Hunter College

City University of New York

 

April 29, 2017

 

Theater of South Asia and the diaspora is a rich topic for exploration, particularly in our current political climate, in which questions of cultural identity, citizenship, personal and cultural expression, movement between cultures and geographic borders are all at the forefront of public discourse globally. How do place and space, our understanding of home and belonging come to inflect the theater that we make?
