The materiality of the body confounds us; it forces a reconsideration of the “linguistic turn,” perhaps even the “social constructionist” turn, by which we understand the world and identity as linguistically or socially constituted. But how do we look at bodies –our own, the first bodies exhibited to us as children, the bodies of clowns and circus performers, or even the bodies of everyday folks with impairments—people who are like us but also somehow different? And what knowledge do such encounters create or reify?

Under the theme of “Versions and Revisions,” the 2020 Salzburg Easter School (SEAS) will be dedicated to Verdi’s Don Carlos. The grand opera will form the centerpiece of the 2020 Salzburg Easter Festival, where it will be presented in a special four-act version with Manfred Trojahn’s new instrumental prologue, which has been specifically commissioned by the Festival. Yet, in its own genesis, Don Carlos has always been characterised by diverse versions and revisions.
