Abstract

The chapter proposes a re!ection on how performing arts can produce alternative representations on migration and “otherness”, challenging the humanitarian and securitarian emergency frame conveyed by contemporary mediatic and political rhetoric. #ese sensationalist and stereotyped images depict migrants as “victims” and/or “potential criminals”, in!uencing public opinion. Within this context, arts, and particularly performing arts, can play a role in challenging these forms of representation, overturning the spectacle of the migration into collective performances. Drawing upon these conceptual premises, the chapter starts with a general re!ection on how arts can promote alternative representations of migration. It will, then, continue with a re!ection on the role of performing arts in enhancing spaces of intercultural conviviality, experiencing di$erent languages and narratives, new communicative spaces and alternative perspectives on experiential citizenship.
