Inbetweeners, Block Attackers, and Curious Incidents: Exploring Identity in Film/TV and Theatre in Theory and Practice

As the success of films like Attack the Block, television series like The Inbetweeners, and theatre plays like The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time show, representations of identity matter in today's film/TV and theatre. This two-day event will examine such representations both theoretically and practically. A short lecture and seminar discussion will introduce key questions concerning representations of identity; such as: What kinds of representations do contemporary film/TV and theatre offer us, and which are absent? Why does it matter how we are represented within these cultural media? How can we use film/TV- and theatre-making to represent ourselves/each other? The discussion will be informed by, for example, ideas about femininity and masculinity, race and ethnicity, age, (dis)ability, technology, and how these affect each other. You will then explore these questions and ideas through practical workshops by making a short film or performance, using specialist equipment and facilities.

Places are limited so there will be a short application form to complete.  To book a place please email A.Wigham@reading.ac.uk

Applications are welcome from all and in event of over subscription then priority will be given to students with no family experience of HE.
