AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This essay canvasses theatrical renditions of time, mobility and belonging in Marie Clements' 'Burning Vision' (2002) and Trevor Jamieson and Scott Rankin's 'Ngapartji Ngapartji' (2005), each dealing with the social and environmental legacies of the Atomic Age in remote indigenous homelands in Canada and Australia, respectively. The plays situate local memories within the currents of global history by delivering intimate yet epic accounts of the effects of nuclear industrialization on land, water, species and human communities. Drawing from Tim Ingold's theorizations of dwelling and Nigel Clark's recent work on the geological scales of cosmpolitanism, I explore ways in which performances of mobility and intercultural connectedness in these theatrical works articulate with conventional notions of indigeneity as a marker of rootedness or belonging to particular geographical spaces.'
