In the wake of the terror attacks of 2001, it explores themes of hospitality, ritualistic scapegoating, and of grieving that which Judith Butler has called an “ungrievable life.” Reed’s play invites a discussion of how contemporary theatre in what is generally called ‘the global North’ investigates the culture of hospitality in the light of simultaneous border consolidation and a decline in national sovereignty in a globalised world. Drawing on Roberto Esposito’s discussion of the foundation of community as a relationship of mutual obligation and on Butler’s suggestion to redefine kinship as a relation of choice, the focus of this paper is on theatre’s sounding of the extent and the limits of hospitality in the face of migration that is often regarded as a threat, and on the theatre’s potential for creating hope.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>The Sacred Guest and the Ungrievable Sacrifice : communitas at the Theatre</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-06-01T08:16:54Z</dcterms:available> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Boll, Julia</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
