Performing Mobilities (exhibition 25 September – 24 October)

Curated by senior RMIT lecturer Mick Douglas, who performed Library Returns at the launch of the RMIT 700s Arts festival, this exhibition seeks to creatively and critically explore forms, forces, dynamics, meanings and consequences of performing mobility through a program of new experimental work.

The offical opening address will be presented by Maaike Bleeker, Professor and the Chair of Theatre Studies at the University of Utrecht The Netherlands.

Maaike Bleeker is President of Performance Studies international, Member of the International Advisory Board of Maska (Ljubljana) and of Inflexions: A Journal of Research-Creation (Montreal), and Member of the Editorial Board (Humanities) of the Amsterdam University Press. Author of Visuality in the Theatre, (Palgrave, 2008), her recent research argues for the potential of theatre and theatricality as a ‘critical vision machine’ providing us with critical tools for analysis of media culture, politics, spectatorship, censorship and the arts.
