“Embodied connections – off-stage/on-stage”

This seminar is open to everyone interested, as a conceptor or as a performer, in the combination of analog and digital performance.

Embracing practices and discourses related to the digital arts and performative somatic practices, the course is an “in-action” reflective laboratory on corporeal and perceptual relationships to space, objects, and the other. In this context, the diversity and complementarity of the skills, interests and points of views of each participant is expected to foster a transdisciplinary ground for the exploration and analysis of performance. The work is done mainly in the classroom-studio, where body awareness practices will be introduced. The participants will be led to experience directed performative situations and to reflect on and articulate their perceptions of them. At times alone and at other times in collaboration with others, they will be progressively brought to develop performative sketches intertwining analog and digital concepts. For those more interested in the conception aspect, it will occasionally be possible to take the position of active observer; in this case, note-taking and the oral analysis of the action taking place are expected. Embodied connections – off-stage/on-stage aims to act as a sensorial and reflective incubator, expanding and enriching the connection to performative, installative, and digital/interactive artistic creation today.
