A 'refuge' provides a place of safety, a place which constitutes the necessary conditions for making work. But what are the conditions of making work for the displaced, exiled or the migrant artist when the 'place' and conditions for work have (perhaps) been erased?
On Refuge looks at how such altered conditions affect the work of performance and considers how performance constructs its own production and survival. The contributors address issues of territory and asylum, home and exile, locality and migration - as they affect both artists themselves and the forms evident in contemporary performance.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This work explores ideas about home and exile, site, location and migration - in relation to the artists themselves and to the forms at play in perfomance today. Performance has always been a nomadic occupation. Unwillingly or by choice artists find themselves positioned outside institutions as political, cultural and financial exiles; they choose or are forced to migrate, or deliberately situate themselves outside accepted structures and sites. The book looks at how these conditons affect the artist's work and considers how contemporay perfomance constitutes the conditions for its own production - and its own survival.
