Abstract

The mediated moral panic about urban insurrections is a recent example of the ways insidious representations of violence are at once everyday and ideologically driven. The text of a performance lecture offers an intimate, embodied consideration of the problem of violence and its representations. The texts from each city (Athens and Istanbul) became scripts for presenting and representing the ways public and private; nation and terror; self and other are negotiated. We investigated the nature of violence in protests in both cities with the aim of presenting the findings through performance.
