2007 Annual Conference
Hosted by the University of Melbourne, School of Creative Arts and La Trobe
University, School of Communications, Arts and Critical Enquiry.
Melbourne 3-6 July 2007
Issues of Scale - political, performative, emotional
While the conditions of fundamentalism and various other ideological essentialisms are intrinsic to our present condition, resistances through arts communities and social spaces take various forms of extremity. Actions range from the apocalyptic, gigantic, and presentational to a more intimate sense of sharing evident in the recent hybrid theatre of bodies, text and little stories.
This conference sought to address the creative and political possibilities and problematics of extreme states, large and small.
