Abstract

Reading the zombie marches of the Occupy Wall Street movement beside a 2011 production of Ibsen's play John Gabriel Borkman raises questions about theatrical labor in neoliberal capitalism. What happens when "dead labor" plays live onstage? Or when live protest actions are played across the living dead? Perhaps the answers can be found in considering economic precarity and precarity in/as performance together.
