Oceanic Performance Biennial- 2013 ISLE&: Performance & Ecological Relationality in the Pacific.

Jul 17, 2013

The Oceanic Performance Biennial is a newly established platform to explore, express and extend contemporary Pacific performance practice and thought. Combining visual, spatial, live and theatrical arts the event is unique in its linking of performance and ecology. Performance is engaged as a fluid trans-disciplinary tool to critique and reimagine cultural, social, political or  geo-ontological ecologies of this region. The Biennial is a Performance Studies international Oceanic regional cluster event.

As an expanded field of flows, Oceania includes those countries and cultures on the ‘edge’ with Pacific Islands at its liquid ‘centre.’ Hosted by different island nations, the Biennial aims to build local capacity and develop Pacific performance and environmental networks. The inaugural event is planned for November 2013, to be held in Auckland, New Zealand: Isle& will focus on islands as sites of exchange and connection. The 2015 Biennial will be held in the Pacific, and will be linked with Performance Studies International’s dispersed global conference Fluid States.
