PRFM3605 - Cross-Cultural and Hybrid Performance

Semester 2, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Amanda Card


This unit will analyse the development of cross-cultural and hybrid performance in Australia, Britain and the United States. Concentrating on a range of Indigenous and non-indigenous performance practices - football mascots, contemporary dance, pop music and text based theatre - we will utilise postcolonial theories, as applied to performance, to explore diverse understandings of innovation and appropriation, ownership and copyright in colonial and post-colonial societies since the 1950s.
