Utopia and Performance: 2021 ANTS Conference Stockholm


The 2021 ANTS conference will take place in Stockholm 30 September - 2 October under the theme of Utopia and Performance. Deadline for abstracts is 30 April 2021.

Theatre and performance engage in proposing various utopian visions as a remedy, as a critical stance in times of crisis, as an imaginary flight from straight realisms, as practiced performativities potentially materializing different futures. For the 2021 ANTS conference we invite contributions which investigate all utopian aspects that demonstrate the relevance and also the urge to practice, discuss, rethink and envision theatre and performance in manifold ways. The Theatre and Dance Department at Stockholm University celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2021. With the proposed theme, we also celebrate the Utopian spirit of its foundation and its future.
