Performance events have long served as potent sites for the creation of atmospheres and affects. Today, performance arts and inter-disciplinary scholarship are increasingly reflecting on the climactic conditions within which societies function, and under which life can best flourish. Activism, art-science collaborations and new theatre aesthetics provide provocative means of interpreting and acting upon such circumstances. And innovative research methodologies and new conceptual paradigms offer ways of re-thinking this radically inter-connected world across many scales of human and non-human activity.
Welcome to the traditional lands of the Kulin Nations. We respectfully acknowledge the people of the Boon Wurrung and the Woi Wurrung who have lived their culture on this land for tens of thousands of years.
