Water & the City

A Lecture by Kunlé Adeyemi/founder of NLÉ based in Amsterdam and Lagos

Where: Royal Institute of Art
When: Tuesday, 24 March, 2015 at 16.00

NLÉ aims to critically examine two of the most significant challenges of our time: rapid urbanization and climate change, in the continent with some of the world’s greatest opportunities, Africa. The impact of rapid urbanization and economic growth of African cities is now common knowledge, yet it cannot be overemphasized. At the same time the impact of climate change through water has now become day-to-day reality, with sea level rise, increasing rainfall and frequent flooding. The relationships of ‘water and the city’ on the African continent, have therefore become critical points of intersection for understanding the future of development in Africa.

Where: Dansens Hus, Lilla scen, Barnhusgatan 14, Stockholm When: March 31, April 1, 19.00-20.30

Carina Reich presents part of her ongoing PhD-project. The absent becoming present – the conducting and realization of ideas within collaborative processes.

The performative part of the seminar at Dansens hus is staged as a collaborative dialogue, by the different voices from the collaborative process. These voices comes partly from Reich’s own experiences of collaborative productions, partly from voices and comments from the working process and performance of Just my imagination I, which were presented at Stockholm University of the Arts, October 2014, and from conversations with collegues about staging and performing the research process.

The opponent for the seminar will be Rasmus Ölme and their discussion will take place at Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts, Valhallavägen 189, T-house, room T2 on 13th of April at 15.00-16.30

Collaborative processes in contemporary performance, dance and exhibitions

From February–May 2015, four international curators and / or dramaturges will meet in dialogue with four international artists and / or choreographers at Stockholm University of the Arts. The dialogues are an initiative from professor André Lepecki and take place within Stockholm Uniart’s profile area Concept and Composition.

The purpose of this series is to invite an international group of distinguished curators / dramaturges and artists / choreographers, who have had an ongoing working relationship with each other, and whose artistic, curatorial and dramaturgical practices have offered a novel understanding of trans-disciplinary knowledge formation in the arts.

Within the conference series CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, the Circus Department at the School of Dance and Circus, part of Stockholm University of the Arts (Uniarts), Sweden, is now accepting proposals for the second conference of Circus Arts Research and Development.
