Drawing and Performance: Creating Scenography International Conference

Saturday, September 28, 2019 - 6:42pm

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Scenographers use drawing as an expressive and communication tool in rehearsal and in performance. They use it as a record of a thought process and an instrument for reflection. Drawing allows discussion and error and serves as a register of the creative process for all involved.

This conference aims at reflecting upon the artistic and pragmatic relationship scenographers, directors and choreographers have with drawing as a device for the creation of space and time of performance and as mediator between the bodies of performers on stage and the drawer’s page.

Illumination: Perspectives on the Way of Light

Monday, September 30, 2019

The origin myths of multiple cultures describe a primordial order of life which emerges from the subterranean world into an upper world of light and growth.  In recent eras, light has come to serve as a metaphor for learning and technological advancement.  The term “enlightenment” continues to portray humankind as both the embodiment of spiritual growth and an historic era in which science and the humanities grew intertwined.  Like moths, we are drawn to the light—everything from the sun to gilded manuscripts to the screens of our own computers.  This conference examines the way light has and continues to reveal significant aspects of the human condition.Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:

Pulpit, Playhouse and Page: Theatrical and Non-Theatrical Exchange in early modern England

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:25pm
University of Sheffield
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 1, 2019

This two-day conference will explore connections between theatrical and non-theatrical texts in early modern England. Theatrical culture functioned in vibrant relation to both non-theatrical performances (such as sermons and entertainments) and non-dramatic poetry and prose. However, moments of exchange between different genres have too often been obscured by disciplinary silos.

By bringing together scholars with a wide variety of interests the conference will open up new research questions which address the creative exchanges between plays and a wide range of non-theatrical texts and performances.

Topics for consideration might include:

Call for Papers: Black Comedy in Contemporary Theater

Panel at the Comparative Drama Conference, Rollins College, Orlando, Florida: April 2-4, 2020

 

Deadline: October 31, 2019

 

Black comedy, as a genre, is under-theorized.  Black comedy received scholarly attention fifty years ago with the advent of such literary humorists as Kurt Vonnegut or Joseph Heller.  Interest has resurged in the twenty-first century in response to idiosyncratic cinematography of Quentin Tarantino or the Cohen Brothers, and in order to address the mordant satire of alternative media post-9/11.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Colleges and universities have witnessed great shifts in student populations over the last few decades, including new populations of veteran  and adult students. Now, as the traditional aged student continues to decline in numbers, one additional population of potential students appears to continue to grow: prison inmate students. College prison programs include both credit programs and enrichment programs. Through programs such as Shakespeare Behind Bars, the recidivism rates have declined as the men and women in these programs discover empathy, a love of language, and the value of community. This panel will explore college prison programs.

“Ethical Dramaturgies”: a special issue of Performing Ethos: An International Journal of Ethics in Theatre & Performance 

The history of the relationship between theatre and ethics laid out by Nicholas Ridout in the eponymous 2009 book from Palgrave’s Theatre &Series describes the relationship of ethics to theatre in the Western tradition as a shift in focus from ethical dramatic content to ethical theatre practice. Following Ridout’s argument, this special issue of Performing Ethos, “Ethical Dramaturgies,” engages ways of writing, working, and presenting performance as they show up in historical and contemporary theatre, performance, and production practice.

Friday, November 15, 2019

Humans have always moved or danced as a way of ritualizing their relationship to the Divine. These dances expressed an understanding of God(s), the relationship of human beings to the divine world, and were an expression of thanksgiving for the life cycle events that move history forward: birth, death, and all that is between. Some circus arts, find their earliest documentation as religious practices. This book begins the investigation of what it means for these practices to meet their holy origins once more, not as a form of expression but as a mode of study.
