The Theatre and Performance Research Association National Conference 2013  takes place in the Royal Conservatoire Of Scotland from Weds 4th-Friday 6th of Sept.

 

Full details can be found HERE 

I’ll be assisting my friend and colleague, the  freelance Arts Consultant Christine Hamilton with her contribution to the Keynote Panel Event in the Stephenson Hall at 4.pm on Weds 4th of Sept.

I’ll be performing  from 3 selected pieces by writers Pamela Carter and David Greig.

To quote from the TaPRA programme :
“Each member of the panel has been asked to reflect on how the practices and insights of contemporary theatre and performance might help to inform, broaden or indeed reconfigure the cultural and political discourses around possible independence in Scotland and accompanying notions of national identity. How might the mental and imaginary landscapes of theatre and performance-making offer productive ways of (re) thinking our views about self-determination, democracy and cultural production in a local, national and global context in the early 21st century.

Hope to see some of you there. Rumour has it I will be around at the wine reception at The Arches at 6.30 pm. Image
