    In this paper, we consider the ways in which performance, as both concept and praxis, might extend current understandings of diaspora. To this end, we focus on three areas where diaspora and performance studies can productively intersect: space, bodies and affect. Our aim is to outline some of the ways in which performance - through its capacity to hold together, in the one iteration, the physical and the material with the abstract and the affective - usefully enlarges and complicates empirically based views of living with, and in diaspora.
