Following the success of Ka Haka! Empowering Performance – the inaugural Māori and Indigenous Performance Studies Symposium (AUT, 2016), we partner with 8th IIRC 2018 to present: Ka Haka II 'Old ways of knowing, new ways of doing'.
We invite proposals for papers and other presentations on the power of authentic Indigenous performance.
What might it mean to call a performance 'authentic' in the Māori and Indigenous context? How might mis/representations of the 'authentic' in Māori and Indigenous culture in performance be seen to reflect, or not, the influence of colonisation, mediatisation and/or globalisation?
In this, we take as read that while performances are often entertaining, such performances can also be seen to have, and to convey, authenticity. Here we ask participants to stake a position in a conversation about the relationship between performance and authenticity in the development of Māori and Indigenous identities and communities.
Fees will be confirmed soon.
