The Performing Arts Research Centre (Tutke) at the Theatre Academy, University of the Arts Helsinki welcomes artistic researchers at doctoral and post-doctoral levels to take part in the fourth biannual colloquium on artistic research in performing arts:
The Non-Human and the Inhuman in Performing Arts: Bodies, Organisms and Objects in Conflict
11th – 13th of June 2015
CARPA4 reflects on performing practices from the point of view of their non-human factors. We ask:
- Whether performance is no longer considered a typically human behavior, expressing and reflecting the intentions and needs of human beings, but rather a point of encounter and a collaborative relation between heterogeneous elements, components or materials, like bodies, organisms and objects.
- How can human performers find their place within performative arrangements, where the logic no longer serves human purposes?
- What to do with bodies that no longer are “mine” or “living”?
- In which ways can different life forms in their wide diversity enter the scene of performing arts and deconstruct this scene?
- What kind of objects does a performance consist of? How can a performance create, liberate, or reunite objects, beyond “object theatre”?
- How is the question of the inhuman defined and resolved in each case?
The colloquium approaches its topic area without specific disciplinary framings, collaboratively, and performatively, in an attempt to support the fruitful meeting of various points of view. It seeks common points of contact, resonating surfaces, and rhythmic interference between its heterogeneous but constituent parts.
Events will be held at Theatre Academy Helsinki, Finland
Christina Ouzounidis text Lagarna is performed at Teater Galeasen in Stockholm during October and November. Lagarna is a piece of practical philosophy: what constitutes a human being – her actions or her intentions? Three actors insist on NOT being Agamemnon, Klytaimnestra or Ifigenia. (photo: Cato Lein)
