Climate Change Futures: What can performance do that theory and politics can’t?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This companion piece to the audio-recording segment of Not Now, Not Ever is like Donna Haraway’s companion species, it is domesticated, by scholarship, it can sit on your lap and you can stroke it or you can play fetch with it. It is not native or wild. It is tamed, demure and obedient but it’s also thinking, feeling and sentient. It is not one of Descartes’ animal-machines, it’s not made of wax, though it would like to have recorded Not Now, Not Ever on a wax cylinder, to retain the warmth of the voice, to avoid the dull drone of the digital. But it can’t help being a cyborg.
