Keynotes & Workshops

 

 

Our Stage

 

Our Stage” introduces the idea of the citizen theatre run as a professional in-house production company, as an artistic business model and new form for creative community outreach via artistic collaboration to the wider sector. The Creative Europe co-funded project enables the participating ETC member theatres to explore the internationally recognized concept of a “Bürgerbühne”. “Our Stage” aims at fostering the democratisation of theatre by introducing innovative forms of production which actively engage professionals, audiences and communities in the creative process, leading to relevant, collaborative and artistically excellent performances. Following the conception workshop in Dresden in February, the partner theatres will develop their artistic collaborations.

“Our Stage” is part of ETC’s ENGAGE programme and corresponds to its Participatory Theatre pillar.

The workshop is open to partner theatres and ETC members interested in joining the project.

 

Lab II: “Memories of Movement”



“Memories of Movements” (working title) is a continuation and development of the digital strategy ETC has established with the “European Theatre Lab”.  Combining technological research in the field of motion capture, drama and dance, “Memories of Movement” is an international artistic project directed by Kay Voges from Schauspiel Dortmund. The project also provides professional technical training and a concrete upgrade of knowledge, hardware and software in the partnering theatres. Following a first conception workshop in Dortmund in February, the partner theatres will finalise the project outline in Oslo and discuss the next steps.  

With “Memories of Movement” ETC further develops two pillars of the ENGAGE programme: Theatre in the digital age and Professional development.

The workshop is open to ETC members having participated in the workshop in Dortmund and welcomes new partners.

“Digital Technologies and Cognitive Science on the Stage”

 

Gabriele Sofia, Associate Professor in Performing Arts at the University of Grenoble Alpes

 

In the last fifteen years, important digital improvements have changed the way of studying human cognition. If traditional tools allowed some kind of fixed images of the brain, new technologies like the fMRI or the High-density EEG allow neuroscientists nowadays to study the behaviour of the human brain in a lapse of time which means studying the brain in action. For this reason, the art of theatre, which is made of action and movement, has become a subject of interest for scientists of human cognition.

Several interactions between theatre cultures, digital technologies and cognitive science have started, developing an important number of scientific and creative projects all over the world. The aim of the keynote is to show how scientific and creative researches are working in a new complementarity that is developing both artistic performances and insights about the actress/actor’s pedagogy, the spectator’s performative experience and applied theatre efficacies.
