Performing Migratory Identity: Performance Research on Displacement, Belonging and Auto/Bio and Participatory Biography

St Aidan’s College, The Lindisfarne Centre
30th October 1-5pm. Lunch is included.

You are warmly invited to attend and participate in a Learning Lab: ‘Performing Migratory Identity: Performance Research on Displacement, Belonging and Auto/Bio and Participatory Biography’

The Counterpoints Arts Lab is hosted by the Centre for Sex, Gender and Sexualities in partnership with Performing Arts, University of Northumbria, Platforma Arts + Refugee Network and The Forge.

The Learning Lab reflects on the performance, film and installation work of London-based artist and researcher, Natasha Davis, with a response by performance artist Jane Arnfield (Reader in Arts, Director of Fine & Visual Arts Programmes, Northumbria University).

Questions for participants to consider include: how can personal autobiographical material open up and facilitate participatory experiences and insights? What form of knowledge is created and received through Davis’s mix of performance, visual and live art and academic research? What can be revealed about histories of migration and displacement through using the body and memory as critical, performance tools? What might performance-led visual and live art bring to the social sciences, sciences and policy disciplines, what possibilities can we imagine?
