Lecture by Prof. Rustom Bharucha on 26.05.2015
| || We cordially invite to the lecture „The Aftermath: Reflections on Terror and Performance“ by Prof. Rustom Bharucha (Professor of Theatre and Performance Studies at the Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi, India) on May 26, 2015, 6:15 p.m. in the Karl Jaspers Centre, room 212. |
Abstract: Drawing on his recently published book Terror and Performance (Routledge 2014), Rustom Bharucha will probe the modalities and enigmas of the dangerous liaisons between terror and performance. The idea of performance will extend beyond theatre practice to encompass four primary sites of investigation: ‘September 11’, Islamophobia, Truth and Reconciliation in the larger contexts of post-apartheid South Africa and post-genocide Rwanda, and Non-Violence vis-a-vis the political practice and philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi.
