IN PLACE OF WAR is an AHRC funded project exploring the relationship between performance and war. From the Greeks to Shakespeare, war has been a major theme in theatre and performance. However some of the most astounding and demanding performance projects in recent years have not been about war but have come from war zones themselves. In Place of War is concerned with these initiatives - theatre in refugee camps, in war-affected villages, in towns under curfew, in cities under siege. Why in times of disruption have individuals and communities turned to performance? The project aims to research, link, debate and develop the practice of performance in sites of conflict - bringing together theatre makers and scholars who practice performance: in place of war.
