The 2020 ATHE Conference explores and interrogates the cycles of reciprocity that take place in our scholarship, teaching, and creative work. In classrooms and studios, on stages and screens, images and language of creation and destruction—building, running, striking—guide our generative practices. We invite you to consider how various technologies—theatrical, automotive, political— work to keep our work going, keep our field driving (somewhere). Keeping in mind that the same technologies that can aid generative work can also destroy, we also invite you to consider how technologies impede progress, foreclose the possibility of sustainable practices, even endanger our ecological health.
