Please join us to celebrate the launch of the sixth edition of the Enjoy Occasional Journal, To find a place.

Editor Louise Rutledge will be joined by contributors Victoria Wynne-Jones and Dilohana Lekamge for an introduction to the project and a conversation on what it means to respond to performances through text and language.

This edition of the journal brings together a collection of articles, responses and page works focusing on the spaces in which performance works are enacted, documented and brought into contact with audiences. From this perspective, the sites of encounter and dissemination for a selection of performance-based work within Aotearoa and further afield have been considered. 

To find a place is an inquiry into where the body has agency, in which spaces it can move, enact and be questioned—where the conditions of surveillance and documentation that characterise how we move through the world can be considered as subversive and generative tools. Contributors include Layne Waerea, Victoria Wynne-Jones, Chris Braddock, Sione Monu, Natasha-Matila Smith and Dilohana Lekamge.
