Abstract

Applied theatre and performance practice offers persuasive illustrations of the ways in which dominant conceptions of resilience and resourcefulness – frequently aligned with neoliberal values – may be critiqued, challenged and displaced. As the contributions within this issue illustrate, such potential resides in a complex ecology of embodied knowledges and contested value, unfolding within located scenes of constraint and complicity. By drawing on a range of practices from different national and cultural contexts, this issue explores the conditions within such renegotiations become possible, in and through performance.
