Call for proposals “Creative practices as a tool to work with heritage. Theater, performance, live art”
Organization: NSU Study Circle 10
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
interventions in a city space
connection between urban environment and people, social practices
heritage as performance
