About

Using a posthumanist lens this paper explores how intergenerational performance practice can allow for new definitions of what being human means to unfold. By focusing on child-adult, professional-nonprofessional and human-nonhuman collaboration, I elucidate the generative role that diverse performers can have in developing an ecological performance practice. I explore how diverse performers can do the ecological in the context of devising and presenting professional contemporary performance, whereby creative process and live performance might enact new definitions of being (more-than) human.
