THE SITUATIONAL SELF - Acting and Identity

We are happy to announce the 6th edition of the Research Academy at the Zurich University of the Arts, a 6-day laboratory for artistic research in the performing arts. We invite practitioners and researchers in the fields of theatre, dramaturgy and performance to apply!

In this Research Academy we want to explore the promises and limits of acting; ethical affordances as well as practical issues of acting and theoretical concepts that respond to current discourses and develop artistic research in shifting discourses of post-colonialism, feminism, representation and embodiment. We are addressing artists and researchers who want to explore those limitations and liberations in a praxis-based approach.

The Research Academy provides a supportive environment for experimentation and discussion, each participant pursuing her or his own research, sharing and taking it to the next level with the help of peer-to-peer feedback.

The Research Academy will be rounded up by the conference “HOW TO ACT – positions on acting on the stage and beyond” at the Zurich University of the Arts on Dec 3rd and 4th.
