INDENT: THE BODY AND THE PERFORMATIVE
22-25 November 2018
Spread over four days, the symposium INDENT collates practices and ideas that enable, expand, and cluster around current notions of the body in performance, through a programme of talks, performances and work-in-progress sharings. It also marks the launch of Gati’s eponymous annual journal, Indent: The Body and The Performative, a digital publication which in its first edition examines the ways in which the body demonstrates and deploys strategies of resistance, throwing up fresh questions about the relationship between the political and the aesthetic. The symposium also forms the backdrop for Indent Lab, a workshop and laboratory space that begins to consider what the act of writing adds up to in the tactile and febrile landscape of the digital interface.
Entry to talks, work-in-progress sharings, and performances is free and open to the public. Indent Lab is a closed session for invited participants only.
Indent: The Body and the Performative is supported by Goethe-Institut/ Max Mueller Bhavan and ProHelvetia – Swiss Arts Council.
