The Performing Ethos journal launched on November 6, 2010
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.
