Launch of Performing Ethos at The Author and the Audience symposium (6th November 2010)

Intellect is delighted to announce the launch of the new journal Performing Ethos: International Journal of Ethics in Theatre & Performance.

The journal will be launched at The Author and the Audience symposium at University of Leeds on Saturday 6th November, which will be held in conjunction with two performances of Tim Crouch's highly acclaimed new play The Author.

This one-day symposium event brings together theatre artists and critics for a day of open debate featuring papers, readings of new work, and roundtable discussions. The Author will provide a jumping-off point for a broader discussion of the relationship between writer and spectator in contemporary theatre practice. The symposium will examine such questions as 'How is the spectator being involved – and even implicated – in the events enacted?' and 'What ethical and aesthetic issues arise when the audience is made explicitly “responsible” for what it is watching?'

The launch of the journal will follow the symposium. Performing Ethos addresses ethical questions raised in contemporary theatre and live performance, both within the politically and aesthetically radical, and the mainstream.
