Martin Welton and Penelope Woods have organized a two-day conference and workshop at Queen Mary University of London: Staging Atmospheres – Theatre and the Atmospheric Turn.
Sponsored by the International Ambiances Network, Welton and Woods have displayed an interdisciplinary interrogation concerning theatre as an “atmospheric” space of encounter and intersection among different disciplines and practices.
The conference aims at encouraging dialogue amongst artists and academics.
