Conversations: On Politics and Performances of Zombies

Wednesday 14 April 2021, 7:30pm - 8:45pm

About this event

Born with cystic fibrosis, QMUL’s Dr Martin O’Brien (Lecturer in Drama, Theatre and Performance) has recently surpassed his life expectancy – as such, the artist is now living in what he terms ‘zombie time’. This conversation, chaired by Martin, explores how performance practices can reveal the politics and possibilities of the zombie by laying bare the experience of living with – and past – life limiting chronic illness.  Martin is joined by the South African writer, theatre-maker, and poet, Genna Gardini, whose doctoral work explores Multiple Sclerosis, gender, queerness, and performance, and other guests for a conversation on the zombie.
