This is perhaps most evident in the comparison between the poetics of the face and the mask.\nAlthough Freud’s own understanding of theatre meant that he did not regard it as a medium of and for an experience of the uncanny\, the sense of what oscillates between the living and the dead has\, nonetheless\, fascinated many theatre artists. \nHow might the uncanny offer a way to understand the mimetic arts of theatre and masquerade? And\, beyond the metaphorical “theatre” to which Freud (like so many theorists) appeals\, how might this relate to the founder of psycho-analysis’ aversion to the telephone? \nDr Mischa Twitchin is a lecturer in the Theatre and Performance Department at Goldsmiths\, University of London. His book\, The Theatre of Death – the Uncanny in Mimesis: Tadeusz Kantor\, Aby Warburg and an Iconology of the Actor is published by Palgrave Macmillan in their Performance Philosophy series; and examples of his performance- and essay-films can be seen on Vimeo. \n  \n\nThe Uncanny: A Centenary\nJoin us this winter for a haunting program\, as we mark the centenary of the publication of Sigmund Freud’s paper on ‘The Uncanny’. The exhibition The Uncanny: A Centenary runs from 30 October 2019 to 9 February 2020\, alongside a programme of related events. \n URL: LOCATION:20 Maresfield Gardens\, London\, NW3 5SX\, United Kingdom CATEGORIES:Events,Talks ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
