Glasshouse is pleased to co-host this conference organized by Esther Neff and Yelena Gluzman.
Theorums, Proofs, Rebuttals, and Propositions: A Conference of Theoretical Theater is being held to communally research how theorizing is performed. We use the word "the-ater" to frame performance modes that propose a way of seeing, or "the-ory." We seek to enable serious consideration of the ways that performance constructs ways of knowing, but also ask how dramaturgy and other "theatrical" ways of knowing inform and sometimes restrict discursive and dialogic processes at large.
Therefore, at the core of this conference is performance. The conference begins with four plenary presentations, all in the form of performances. Each of these will be followed by a moderated discussion. The responses by conference participants will discuss, derail, and embody theater-as-theory.
