Blood is polyvalent, it moves, flows, transfers, is pumped and pours, but it also sticks, plugs, clots and coagulates. The visibility of blood exposes the fragility of boundaries and the permeability of bodies, offering both a fluid potentiality and a threat. The fluidity of blood challenges the notion of stable systems. The many meanings ascribed to blood are far from stable or self-evident. Through a performance studies lens, 'On Blood' invites interdisciplinary discussions and new perspectives on how blood is read and positioned as a bodily substance, material property and metaphor in areas such as religious festivals and contexts, menstrual performances, political activism, professional wrestling, live art and pop culture.
