New Article in Studies in Theatre and Performance

My article ‘Networked Audience Participation: The Futurity of Post-Brexit Democracy in One Day, Maybe and Operation Black Antler‘ has now been published.

It will appear in a special edition of Studies in Theatre and Performance titled Performance and the Right: Strategies and Subterfuges later this year.

The article can be accessed here: https://www.tandfonline.com/eprint/ZSNY4FM5TFXBYA6CYFHC/full?target=10.1080/14682761.2021.1964849

Audience participation in performances by dreamthinkspeak and Blast Theory & Hydrocracker is framed as a model of network politics. This mode of discourse is proffered as a means of countering rightwing authoritarianism in the context of Brexit.

One Day, Maybe looks at the legacy of the May 1980 Gwangju Uprising and the changing meaning of democracy in South Korea, while Operation Black Antler explores the ethics of state surveillance and the British far right.
