Dramaturgies of performance

11.09.2006 | In the academic year 2005/2006, the seminar Reflections on Contemporary Art: A Seminar in Contemporary Performing Arts will run under the title Dramaturgies of performance: Dramaturgical practices in contemporary theatre and dance. It will consist of regular lectures, three workshops and a series of public lectures. The students will participate in the seminar and the three workshops. Guest lectures will be preceded by seminar videoshops (the viewing of selected works from the field of contemporary performing and visual arts). The seminar will thus also provide an opportunity to gain an insight into the current state of affairs in theatre. The lectures will run from 7 November 2005 to 15 May 2006. They will take place in Cankarjev dom on Mondays, usually in theatre M3/4, between 7 and 10 pm. The seminar will consist of the internal sessions on Mondays (36 hours, i. e. 9 sessions) conducted by Assoc Prof Bojana Kunst, and a series of public lectures by prominent Slovenian and foreign experts (8 sessions). In addition to this, the students will be able to participate in three theoretical and practical workshops (70 hours), which will explore various aspects of the dramaturgical work and the themes in contemporary performing arts. The workshops will be conducted by Gerald Siegmund, Kattrin Deufert and Thomas Plischke. They will take place in November, January and March.
