  • Theatre and Technology

    Headlong in association with the Cultural Institute at King's | Jan. 26, 2015

    How do you write or stage a play about technology? How is technology changing the ways in which we consume and make performance?

    Robert Delamere, Jeremy Herrin, Dawn King and Tassos Stevens discuss the ways in which technology is transforming contemporary theatre and performance.

    Chaired by Sarah Grochala.

  • Theatre and Surveillance

    Headlong in association with the Cultural Institute at King's | Jan. 19, 2015

    Theatre is an ineherntly voyeuristic medium. Since the Snowden revelations, there have been a series of shows that have focused on the ethics and extent of contemporary surveillance. At the same time, activists challenging surveillence culture have often used forms of performance, both offline and online, to challenge Big Brother's ever widening gasp.

    Robert Icke, Prof. Tim Jordan, Duncan Macmillan and Dr. Dan Mcquillan discuss the ways in which theatre and other forms of performance have been used to explore the nature of contemporary surveillance culture.

    Chaired by Dr. Bthaj Ajana.

     

  • 1984 and Contemporary Surveillance

    Headlong in association with the Cultural Institute at King's | Jan. 12, 2015

    People often refer to the idea that we are living in 1984 when talking about contemporary surveillance culture, but to what extent is that a valid observation? How much do contemporary forms of surveillance actually resemble the forms of surveillance that Orwell imagines in 1984? 

    Dr. Btihaj Ajana, Dr. Claudia Aradau and Prof. Alex Callinicos discuss the relationship between Orwell's own experiences in post-war London, his vision of 1984 and our contemporary surveillance society.

    Chaired by Sarah Grochala.
