Event Details

How might we rethink the temporality of performance and the relations that sustain it? In what ways does the ‘persistence of performance’ challenge our understandings of the material and immaterial, the secular and the spiritual? Looking at examples of recent trans-generational collaboration in contemporary art and dance, this talk reformulates the question of the material investments and affinities of performance artists. Performance’s historical survival is seen in the light of art’s re-attunement to planetary forces and to the powers of the unknown.

 

Adrian Heathfield writes on, curates and creates performance. His books include Out of Now, a monograph on the Taiwanese-American artist Tehching Hsieh and the edited collections Perform, Repeat, Record and Live: Art and Performance. His numerous essays have been translated into seven languages. He currently works on a creative research project – Curating the Ephemeral – funded by the European Union. He is Professor of Performance and Visual Culture at the University of Roehampton, London
