Research Area 2 Meeting | Bishnupriya Dutt: Artivism. Rethinking Political Theatre, Spectatorship and Citizenship Practices in Post-Colonial Spaces
Organised by Research Area 2: "Travelling Matters".
Speaker: Bishnupriya Dutt (Jawaharlal Nehru University/Temporal Communities Distinguished Fellow of Global Literary Studies)
Post-independent Indian theatre explored critical questions of subjectivities, inter-subjective encounters and political-theatre activism, amidst charged spaces of strikes, protests and working class mobilisation. The presentation aims to offer some insights into theatre and performance practices and genealogy of political theatre at a significant moment, as Stuart Hall says, the critical conjuncture.
