Baz Kershaw : Crossing Borders

Independent Dance continues its Crossing Borders 2015 series with a talk from Baz Kershaw.

3 November | 7 - 8.30pm
If all organisms – including humans – are performed by ecology, what ‘border crossings’ might lead to more hopeful futures?
Humankind is heading for an environmental crisis that could make the extinction of the dinosaurs look like child’s play. Most people on Earth are becoming aware of this prospect, thanks to technology and climate change scientists. But still the vast majority seem to behave as if it is a chimera. This talk explores that conundrum through an elementary conceit. What if all organisms fundamentally are performed by Earth’s ecologies? What fresh horizons would humans have to imagine for performing ecologically more responsively? Then, as the future is always before its time, our everyday play perhaps could become an evolution that changes everything. Baz Kershaw is Emeritus Professor of theatre and performance at University of Warwick. An engineer before gaining arts and humanities degrees from Manchester, Hawaii and Exeter Universities, he has been keynote speaker at many international conferences and visiting researcher at universities on four continents.
