讲座内容:Following the publication of Jane Bennets Vibrant Matter: a political ecology of things(2009) much more attention has been given to the role of non-human agents, stage properties and new technologies in the visual and performing arts.  Some of this thinking has been around the dramatic and performative qualities of non-human forms such as puppets, performing animals and things that change and transform the artistic experience.  Theatre scholars have connected this to a range of critical theories and contexts including new media dramaturgy, theatre and ecology, and affect and spectatorship.  My lecture will examine these notions in relation to recent performance works and argue for the need for theatre to connect to themes of ecology and posthumanism.
