The choreography of gender in traditional Vietnamese music

This artistic research project is concerned with the function of gesture in traditional Vietnamese music. One of the aims is to investigate the social function and meaning of musical gesture in this traditional culture. The findings will be subject to a critical reading from a gender perspective. From this point of departure I will attempt to expand the expressive scope of my performance, both in the context of traditional music but also in experimental projects.
In my 25% seminar I will discuss the performance/installation Inside/Outside and the film project Seven Stories in two online papers that include video material and parts of the pieces. The seminar moves seamlessly between performance and discussion and includes a live performance of a scene from Seven Stories.

mette ingvartsen: the artificial nature project


When: 6-7/2, 2014
Where: Kaaitheater, 20 square Sainctelette, 1000 Brussels

In the exhibition Making Things Public (2005) and in the accompanying book, the French philosopher and sociologist Bruno Latour presented his vision of a ‘politics of things’. How can the concept of representation be extended in our representative democracy so that it loses its exclusive human interpretation? Politics is about the world and therefore it is not only people that are represented in parliament, but also ‘things’. In recent years, Mette Ingvartsen, inspired by Latour’s ideas, has worked on a series of performances in which the question of ‘non-human actions’ in a choreography play a central role. It is no longer the performer’s body alone that she brings to the stage; she also allows objects and materials to act as full participants. This is a repeat of the four performances that resulted from that research.

Sing, Yell, Tell: A Panel on Voice

As part of the upcoming exhibition of Jeanine Oleson’s exhibition Hear, Here the New Events Museum is presenting Sing, Yell, Tell, a public panel bringing together experts who will discuss the notion of voice, from technical concerns to political potential to affective possibilities. This is the beginning of a full Season exploration of VOICE, ranging from the relationships between vocal performers and engaged audiences to voice as agency in political work. Is there a connection between the discernment of an audience and the galvanizing of political agency when viewing the world stage? Is the affective power of another’s voice an activating force? Is there a historic connection between care, queerness, cultural criticism, and activist voice?


cecilia parsberg: 50% seminar


Where: The Museum of World Culture, GöteborgPastedGraphic-1
When: 30/1 10-12 (will be held in Swedish)

How do you become a successful beggar in Sweden?

50% doctoral seminar
Opponent: Klas Grinell, history of ideas.

In her research she poses these questions:

  • What image is the kneeling begger facing?
  • What image is the giver facing when he or she give or don’t give to the begger?
  • What are the potential images in the space of action between the beggar and the giver, and how can these images be portrayed?

Through various practices she tries out how these ”images” – collective as well as individual, visual as well as linguistic – are set in play in the society.

28/1 – 2/2 open Laboratory at The Museum of World Culture, Göteborg
Cecilia Parsberg has since two years researched what images beggars and givers have of each other. Now she has moved her studio to the museum, where she holds five days “open laboratory”. Visitors are welcome to meet her and discuss. See additional seminar info at www.varldskulturmuseerna.se or the project sites: beggingasaprofession.eu (English) tiggerisomyrke.se (Swedish)
