The Performing Ethos journal launched on November 6, 2010

Posted on

In conjunction with “The Author and the Audience” symposium at the University of Leeds, the first issue of Performing Ethos — which “addresses ethical questions raised in contemporary theatre and live performance, both within the politically and aesthetically radical, and the mainstream” — has been released.

Devora Neumark’s “Close Proximity” is one of the featured articles in the inaugural issue (pp 69-83) and focuses on the possibility for artistic practice to effectively catalyse and support wellness.

Neumark’s article explores resilience, the power of symbolic meaning-making and the scale of influence at the nexus of beauty and home relative to community performance.

Devora Neumark is an artist-in-residence at matralab.
