EXTREME STATES: Issues of Scale-political, performative, emotional

The 2007 ADSA conference calls for papers, panels, presentations and 
other relevant contributions on the theme of Extreme States: Issues of 
Scale-political, performative, and emotional.

While the conditions of fundamentalism and various other ideological 
essentialisms are intrinsic to our present condition, resistances 
through arts communities and social spaces take various forms of 
extremity. Actions range from the apocalyptic, gigantic, and 
presentational to a more intimate sense of sharing evident in the recent 
hybrid theatre of bodies, text and little stories.

This conference seeks to address the creative and political 
possibilities and problematics of extreme states, large and small. We 
invite proposals for contributions on the following topics and/or 
related themes:

  . Fundamentalist acts
  . Performance and/as ideology
  . The politics of presentation and the presentation of politics
  . The performance of consensus
  . The multitude in extremis
  . Torture
  . Aesthetic extremities - "big and little"
  . Disciplining the actor: methods of training
  . The topology of emotions
  . Uses and abuses of emotions
  . Social worker as artist and vice versa
  . The art of lying
  . The rise of "small" theatre
  . The small as a political gesture
  . The 'personal is the political' made strange
  . The return of Theatre
  . Faith
  . The significance of the incidental gesture
  . The possibilities of extension
  . The reaching body - extension/hyper-extension
  . Theatre and revolution

Contributors are encouraged to propose working groups, curated panels or 
individual papers.

Please submit proposals and abstracts up to 300 words by email:
