Haunting the Past’s Present: Falling for the Forgotten (and not) Dead of History is a  participatory memorial performance that will take place from dusk-till-dawn on Saturday June 29 at Stanford University, Old Union Courtyard (520 Lasuen Mall) as part of the Performance Studies International Conference 19.

Each of Haunting’s participants is asked to identify a population whose deaths are largely disavowed or marginalized by dominant discourses and processes of memorialization and to dedicate their falls to the memory of this constituency.
