‘For they are the abstract and brief chronicles of the time’: Negotiating Shakespearean Characters in Performance from Past to Present

In criticism, relying on character study or treating Shakespearean characters as real
people, has often been censured. But, in performance, where actors especially need to
get under the skin of the characters they portray, Shakespearean personae do exhibit
some kind of biographical reality.

Philosophizing Performance, Performing Philosophy

Performance philosophy has been in development for the past decade as an interdisciplinary approach to performance studies. The contemporary global reality and political-economic situations have called forth performances that operate within new frames of reference and use new technologies. Understanding the complex politics of these new performances requires a fresh theorizing, a specifically contemporary philosophy of performance. The ‘crossover’ of performance and philosophy hybridizes the spaces between and around the two ‘conceptual personae’ (Deleuze and Guattari). The present areas of conceptual interrogation include radical interventionist studies of existing philosophies to place performance into perspective.

As our daily lives have grown more and more dominated by technology and by a corresponding fascination with the “new,” there’s been a counter movement interested in reexamining the ways of “the past.”  Whether it is handmade books, craft-made pickles, vintage automobiles, or handlebar mustaches, indeed the cliché often seems true now: what’s old is new again.

Friday, November 11 - Sunday, November 13, 2016

Extended deadline: July 1, 2016

 

Panel: “Drama and Society”

Drama has long served as a communal mirror to society, reflecting its habits, aesthetics, politics and cultural norms. This panel seeks to explore the ways in which drama reveals its intricate relationship to society; how does drama (through both text and performance) support, embody and critique the world in which it was created?
