Abstract / Summary

On Sea/At Sea - Performance Research (Vol 21:2 April 2016)
Co-edited by Richard Gough & Sam Trubridge

On/At Sea focuses on the sea as an unbounded, unfixed territory with no recognizable performance cartographies, asking the question – how often does performance go to sea? This is both a literal and poetic question, thus inquiring about specific nautical performances ‘on the sea’, as well as the poetic state of being ‘at sea’, that is, within a fluid, unfixed, or liquid condition. Does the need for survival in this place render artistic, performative expression as something superfluous and trivial? How can a performance culture be shaped by this liquid, ever-moving terrain? Is perhaps, the sea a place where performance is suspended momentarily? We are seldom actually ON the sea and being AT sea is a giving over to the elements, casting off from attachments and moorings.
