“Who am I as a researcher, female writer, theatre practitioner, and may I be all three at the same time? Can I research my own identity and perform my findings with credibility?”
Virginia Woolf once wrote: The human frame being what it is, heart, body, and brain all mixed together, and not contained in separate compartments as they will be no doubt in another million years, a good dinner is of great importance to good talk (Woolf.1928:21).
In this paper performance, 2013 QUT PhD alumnus Marit Ulvund will explore and perform her role as a female performative, writing and researching subject. The performance is based on her reflections from the last 10 years gathered in a document called Thoughts, and which is free writings related to her PhD process, herself, and later work. Moreover, it refers to performances and other texts in papers, articles, and with reference to other writers.
Music composed and played by Stein Helge Solstad (guitar).
