2007 Festival Of Original Theatre: Dissolving Borders.

Graduate Centre For Study of Drama, Univeristy of Toronto.

February 16-19

We invite papers and artistic presentations that examine themes
surrounding intercultural
performance for the 2007 Festival Of Original Theatre: Dissolving
Borders. This
conference and performance based festival sets out to interrogate the
concept of
intercultural performance by creating a forum for discussion between theatre
practitioners and the academic community while addressing the ever-
expanding definition
of culture and the question of what constitutes a cultural group in theatre.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

Intercultural performance in Canada.

Defining Culture: What constitutes a cultural group in theatre.

Case Studies on Intercultral theatrical process and the performance of
difference.

Multi versus (or in relation to) Inter culturalism- as well as issues
of intra and trans
culturalism.

The constructions and contestations of difference in theatre/ performance.

Borders/ liminal spaces in intercultural theatre.

Pedagogical/ practical strategies for considering cultural plurality
and understanding
diversity.

The Dissolving Borders conference and festival provides a forum for
scholars and artists
to engage in discussion through papers, performances, talk -backs and
panels. We
encourage submissions from graduate students.

If you are interested in proposing a paper or presentation please send
a 200-250 word
abstract by October 24, 2006. Submissions may be sent by e-mail to:
foot.graddrama_at_utoronto.ca
