Call for Proposals for ATHE Panel, "The Spectrum of Spectacle in NYC: Contemporary Downtown Performance Aesthetics"

updated: 
Monday, October 24, 2016 - 11:35am
Rachel Anderson-Rabern and Jessica Brater (conveners)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 29, 2016

In many ways, the spectrum of “spectacle” aesthetics that threads through New York’s contemporary downtown performance community unearths new ways of examining the ethics and political engagement of these diverse groups and performance-makers. Inclusive of epic works like Taylor Mac’s A 24-Decade History of Popular Music and Nature Theater of Oklahoma’s Life and Times; The Wooster Group’s and The Builder’s Association’s sophisticated tech-scapes; and Half Straddle’s shoestring excess; downtown performance artists increasingly reinvent, challenge, resist, and embrace the spectacular.
