(Re)imagining Borders: The Performing Arts in Global Dialogue


WHEN Tuesday, March 30, 2021
6:30-8pm WHERE Zoom Webinar WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

At a moment when we are confronted by the changing nature and conditions of borders and borderlands, can the performing arts serve as a catalyst for (re)imagining current border logics, shaped not only by long-standing territorial and political disputes but also by the effects of globalization? This panel engages with the meaning of borders not only as physical sites of conflict and contestation but also as cultural and imagined spaces, where competing interests, ideologies, and narratives are brought into dialogue through music, dance, and theater.
