What will it take for scholars, teachers and makers of theatre and performance to survive twenty-first-century neo-liberal globalization? If the ‘global’, the ‘interdisciplinary’ and the ‘collaborative’ are now the terms on which our work is judged and our grants granted, what can and should these terms mean to us, beyond the monetary? If we internationalize our practices, what are the methods by which this internationalization can be most fruitful, its encounters most ethically productive? Or, to be as basic as possible about this braid of challenges: what exactly is ‘international’ performance research today, and how do you teach it ethically? These are the provocative questions at the heart of International Performance Research Pedagogies.
