A Short Disquisition on Anatopia: Rethinking Place and its Performance

Mackey, Sally A Short Disquisition on Anatopia: Rethinking Place and its Performance.

Abstract

Using examples from three research projects in performing place, 2016-19, and reflecting on previous work, this document reconsiders place and its performance. Anatopia is offered and repositioned as a capacious, malleable, and hopeful term for contemporary places that can be forged within precarious, mobile lives. A case is made, also, for performing place to be more appropriately nuanced as anatopic performance practice and one that takes account of ‘time’ in addition to place. Anatopic performance practice is offered as practice facilitated with residents through subverting and repositioning local environments.
