Friday, February 23
Room #3416, GC CUNY, Third Floor
12:00pm Lecture

FREE + Open to public. First come, first served.

Join scholar, author, and editor Richard Gough as he explores and anticipates the future of global dramaturgy. Gough will discuss changes in international dramaturgical practice, why we should be interested in it, what new ways of research might look like, and what pitfalls might arise. Followed by a discussion with Peter Eckersall.

Performance Research resists disconnected, disembodied and disinterested forms of scholarship. Performance Research combines writings and works for the page in an interplay of analysis, anecdote, polemic, and criticism–interweaving the oblique with the conflicting, the pivotal with the resistant and the eclectic with the indispensable.

Richard Gough is Artistic Director of the Centre for Performance Research (CPR), Professor of Performance Research, Falmouth University, Fellow of IRC/IPC Freie Univeristat Berlin, and General Editor of Performance Research (The Journal of Performance Arts published bi-monthly by Routledge, Taylor & Francis) and Performance Books. He was founding President (1997-2001) of Performance Studies international (PSi) and he has curated and organized numerous conference and workshops over the last 40 years as well as directing and lecturing internationally.
