BALANCING ACTS No. 14, Vol. 2

Balance is an insecure state. When extreme acts of falling (releasing) and suspension (being unable to move) push bodies off balance, into a state of disorientation, balance is put into question. Following Sara Ahmed’s observation that bodies lose their balance if they do not move along the straight vertical line of capital (2016) and Anne Cooper Albright’s analysis which explores how we can practice realigning ‘at the edge of our balance’ (2019), this issue of Platform investigates moments in which balance is put at stake.

Since 2017, the #metoo movement has been successful for the conviction of Harvey Weinstein, who was at the center of the landmark trial. The same cannot be said in the case of India, which is still coming to terms with the issue of gender-based violence. Our panel will examine the representations of women who have been forgotten or have been rendered invisible in the national and international media discourse. Our panel will examine such representations through the study of South Asian filmic and theatre representations of Dalit (lower-caste), Northeast Indian, and women who were foundational figures in the defining the newly minted nation—India and Pakistan.

ABOUT CONFERENCE: Affects, emotions and perceptions have always been at the center of philosophical discussion. Yet the so called “Affective turn” in social studies and humanities is relatively a new phenomenon inspired by Deleuze and Guattari´s influential works among others. Affective turn challenges the still dominant representational approach in semiotics, discourse analysis and text analyses of all kind. Its goal is to overcome human exceptionalism together with the domination of the word-based language over the other forms of expression in the process of creating meaning and knowledge altogether.

Louis Althusser’s thought is receiving renewed attention in the humanities and social sciences. This session seeks to bring together scholars of various disciplines and specializations to explore the potential of a return to Althusser in the particular context of Renaissance/early modern studies. Contributions may reflect on Althusser’s writings on early modern figures, make use of Althusserian concepts to produce new readings of early modern texts, or engage relevant theoretical questions.

deadline for submissions:

This is a call for proposals for people who want to talk about sex from their own perspective. Once the deadline ends (12/31/20), I will select 6-7 proposals and, along with their authors, continue to develop a play about sex that will have a staged reading in New York as well as be used as script where I teach. Furthermore, this play will be offered to drama therapists and/or sex educators to be workshopped with their clients and/or students. 

The play will be developed based on a series of questions that I will share with those selected at a later date. I am ONLY interested in personal accounts that help advance a mature and uninhibited talk about sex

As of this writing, we find ourselves about ten days into international protests following the murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Protesters the world over have made specific calls to action: acknowledge that black lives matter, educate yourself about social and racial injustice, and change the legal system that allows these heinous acts to go unpunished. In thinking through how we in the field of educational theatre can proactively address these needs, I reminded myself that there are many artists and educators who are already deeply engaged in this work.

From the time government agencies and the press reported the emergence of a novel corona virus in late 2019, there has been a fundamental shift in the way we congregate, communicate, and educate across the world. Artists and educators have been called upon to reinvent their practice seemingly overnight. While we struggle to balance our personal health and wellness, our community contributions remain as vital as ever. In tribute to this reinvention, ArtsPraxis invites you to share your scholarship, practice, and praxis. As we’ve asked before, we welcome teachers, drama therapists, applied theatre practitioners, theatre-makers, performance artists, and scholars to offer vocabularies, ideas, strategies, practices, measures, and outcomes.

The Texas Theatre Journal is accepting submissions for book reviews its Special 2020 Volume—“Theatre in Crisis”—responding to COVID-19 for 2020. Published annually by the Texas Educational Theatre Association, our mandate is to feature the work of graduate students whenever possible (so please share far and wide with your graduate students—and other colleagues too!).
