Gastvortrag von Prof. Dr. Rustom Bharucha (Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi)
"The Aftermath: Reflections on Terror and Performance"
Zeit: Dienstag, 12. Mai 2015, 19.00 Uhr c.t.
Ort: Institut für Theaterwissenschaft (TWM), Raum 109, Georgenstraße 11
Drawing on his recently published book Terror and Performance (Routledge 2014), Rustom Bharucha will probe the modalities and enigmas of the dangerous liaisons between terror and performance. The idea of performance will extend beyond theatre practice to encompass four primary sites of investigation: ‘September 11’, Islamophobia, Truth and Reconciliation in the larger contexts of post-apartheid South Africa and post-genocide Rwanda, and Non-Violence vis-a-vis the political practice and philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi.
Rustom Bharucha is Professor of Theatre and Performance Studies at the School of Arts and Aesthetics, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India.
