The Theme of the Department of Theatre's 2017-18 Season
Exile, refugee, asylum-seeker, nomad, migrant, immigrant… these terms that share a sense of displacement and a feeling of Otherness. While some of these terms can be defined in legal and political terms, others speak to a rift that generates a social and psychological condition. Our season this year reflects aspects of the varied experience of persons who, either by choice or as a result of imposition, are living outside their home of origin, are Othered by virtue of colonial exile practises, or who have returned home only to find it unrecognizable, or who, as the children or grandchildren of exiles are living in two worlds. These are plays of longing and belonging, isolation and empowerment.
