CORD International Conference on Human Rights and Dance.

Dance and Human Rights examines the ways in which dance, in its various popular and theatrical forms, is intimately connected to human rights issues, appearing both at the heart of human-rights abuses, and at the center of individual and communal well-being.

November 10-13, 2005

Montreal, Quebec

 15-18 June 2006, Performance Studies international #12, Performing Rights Conference

 Hosted by the School of English and Drama, Queen Mary, University of London, in collaboration with East End Collaborations and the Live Art Development Agency (UK)

What can performance do for human rights, and human rights for performance?

The Performing Rights Conference will comprise plenary sessions, curated panels, papers and presentations, in which contributors will engage with the political, aesthetic and philosophical dimensions of the relationship between performance and human rights, on topics ranging from public and collective acts of insurrection to the intimacies and fragility of individual freedom and subjectivity.

Performing Rights Events will include performance interventions, presentations, installations, screenings and displays. There will be invited presentations, artist-led laboratories, site experimentations and spontaneous interactions. These will attempt to create a context for exploring the role of performance and the responsibilities of artists in effecting political, social and cultural change.

PSi #12: Performing Rights invites submissions, recommendations and ideas for the conference activities and performance interventions. We particularly welcome information on or proposals from artists, projects and initiatives that are concerned with or informed by issues of Human Rights. We are especially interested in projects that may not be researched through conventional channels.
