Strategies of Resistance in Chinese Theatre: History, Politics, Acts
Tuesday, November 5th, 2013 1:15pm – 2:45pm Seminar Room, 214 College St.

Antje Budde studied Theatre  and Cultural Communication as well as Modern China Studies at Humboldt-University in Berlin, Germany. For three years she studied, conducted graduate research, and worked artistically in Beijing both at the Central Academy of Drama and the National Experimental Theatre. She has returned many times to P.R. China for research, conferences and artistic projects. Her specialized interests include: focused innovation and experimentation in cross-cultural theatre past and present, theatricality of political action/history, feminist, queer and multimedia theatre, media history and performance. In her work she integrates research, artistic exploration, experimental modes of teaching and professional work as consultant, translator and interpreter (German, English, Mandarin) for international theatre festivals, theatre companies and city councils. After arriving in Canada in 2005 she also developed an interest in Chinese-Canadian theatre, which is reflected in her teaching, her publications and theatre experiments. She has written one of the most important books on the history, practice and politics of experimental theatre in China, which has become a classic at German speaking universities, both in theatre and China studies departments. However, her major interest has always been in theatre, performance, and media, not only in China but any other country for that matter. This poses significant difficulties for both academics and artists who like to confine people’s work in narrow disciplinary, artistic or other (i.e. nationalist) little labeled boxes. As an interdisciplinary, multi-lingual researcher, artist and teacher, scarred by experiences of the Cold War in Europe, she is happy to escape/confront any narrow notions of WHATEVER.

Tuesday Dec. 3rd 1:15pm-2:45pm in the Seminar Room

 This Stage of the Game: Video Games as Performance and Theatre
with Cassandra Silver and Larry Switzky

 

What kind of performer is a video game player? What kind of theatre can happen in and with video games? This colloquium offers several visions of how performance studies, theatre history, and games studies collide. We’ll discuss gaming and spectatorship through the relationship, at once embodied and impersonal, active and passive, emotional and strategic, between the gamer and her on-screen avatar. We’ll discuss when and how games train players to perform. We’ll discuss games, philosophy, and live performances as sites of moral choice. We’ll play, we’ll talk about playing, and we’ll play some more.
