full name / name of organization:
Dr Rob Fisher/Inter-Disciplinary.Net
2nd Global Conference
Sunday 6th November – Tuesday 8th November 2011
Theatre and other types of staged performance are inter-disciplinary forms of art, drawing ideas and symbolisms from the fields of humanities, making historical references and links, presenting social relations, putting forward great ideas and dilemmas of the mind, highlighting aspects of the human personality and employing all existing art-forms in order to create a performance as a whole. Performance practice can be examined from the artistic point of view, but also from a cultural, a sociological, a historical, a psychological, a semiological, an anthropological, as well as from an educational perspective. The term “performance practice” refers to the interface within which the work of the director, actor, movement director and choreographer, scenographer (set and costume designer), musical director, composer, lighting designer and sound designer meet. It also includes all aspects and issues involving the theatrical process, from the initial concept to the final realization.
The aim of this conference is to develop discussion with a focus on the visual aspects of performance brought up by visual and spatial artists and researchers in various performance disciplines and practices.
Papers, workshops, presentations and pre-formed panels are invited on any of the following themes:
- Visual interpretation of text / of narrative
Papers will also be considered on any related theme. 300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 17th June 2011. If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 23rd September 2011.
