Imagined Theatres: Publication launch

CO-PRESENTED BY FUSEBOX FESTIVAL

“Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next.” — Arundhati Roy

Imagined Theatres, Issue 05: Curating Performance asks a selection of curators, artistic directors, producers, and arts administrators to enter into dialogue about their hopes and dreams for the future of the performing arts.

Imaginedtheatres.com began as a book that brought together conceptual events, hypothetical performances, and visions for the theatre written by theorists, artists, and critics of the contemporary stage. After the book was published, there was a desire to continue to expand the scope of the conversation, and so the online journal imaginedtheatres.com was founded, and has since published four issues each based on a different theme, the second of which focused on Australia.

Issue #05 will be launched during Liveworks in October 2020 and feature a series of readings by contributors.

Issue #05 was guest-edited by Fusebox artistic directors Anna Gallagher-Ross and Ron Berry and features contributions from: Aaron Wright, Amy Letman, Andrew Tay, Brian Rogers, Bronwyn Lace, Claire Malika Zerhouni, Drew Klein, Erin Boberg Doughton, Gideon Lester, Gundega Laiviņa, Ivana Ivkovic, Jane Gabriels, Jeff Khan, Joyce Rosario, Juliet Knapp, Katia Arfara, LJ Findlay-Walsh, Lane Czaplinski, Lia Gangitano, Lisa Gilardino & Eva Neklyaeva, Low Kee Hong & Silvia Bottiroli, Luis Guenel, Lumi Tan, Mariana Arteaga & Silverio Orduña, Matthieu Goeury, Maya Zbib, Meiyin Wang, Naomi Campbell, Philip Bither, Pia Agrawal, Reneltta Arluk, Shanta Thake, Shoshana Polanco, Tara Aisha Willis, Tobi Kyeremateng,Tom Sellar, Vincent de Repentigny, and Marie Casimir.
