Call for proposals “Creative practices as a tool to work with heritage. Theater, performance, live art" Summer Symposium

Oslo, Norway, July 28 - August 4

Deadline: June 1st

 

We warmly invite you to take part in the Summer Symposium organized by the Nordic Summer University. Our section will be focusing on the Nordic-Baltic regions’ heritage and all kinds of performative practices which will be considered as a tool to interpret, redefine and appropriate heritage.

This focus seems to us important and relevant for at least two reasons. Firstly, today many researchers consider heritage as a process and even as a performance. Secondly, the interaction between heritage and art opens up new possibilities, ranging from the inclusion of the body and perception to the chance to discover something for one's own experience.

Future participants can propose both theoretical presentations (up to 30 minutes) and practical workshops (up to 90 minutes). Possible topics include, but are not limited to: 

site-specific theater and performance in historical sites or on historical topics

embodied knowledge and body memory

theater and performance in museums

historical reenactment

performative commemoration

interventions in a city space

connection between urban environment and people, social practices

heritage as performance

Since our Study Circle was created specially for Nordic Summer University, we are eager to focus on cases and topics dedicated to the Nordic-Baltic regions and will prioritize applications connected to this geography.
