ARTAUD FORUM 1:
The World from within and without
(in memoriam Kazuo Ohno)
This symposium and performance laboratory initiates a series of annually held research events at Brunel University’s Artaud Performance Centre, bringing together an invited group of international theatre and dance artists, filmmakers, photographers, art theorists and researchers engaged in creative practices that reflect on major innovative performance traditions of the past century and their impact on current performance knowledge and physical (or physical-digital) techniques. The first instalment of the ARTAUD FORUM is dedicated to the memory of Kazuo Ohno and the complex convergences/ differences between Japanese and Western performative methods.
The symposium-workshop is composed of dialogue and performance practice, intermixed with live dance, film screenings and a photographic exhibition.
Participant observers are welcome to enrol for a £ 60 conference fee (£ 45 concession).
The “Workshop Words,” as the late Kazuo Ohno called reflections on his practice, will be published by the Centre for Contemporary and Digital Performance.
The keynote speakers will provide important stimulus to the conference from various perspectives, informing and challenging our thinking about the conference theme.
