University of the Arts Helsinki Theatre Academy

Reminder: CARPA8 registration is open

The Performing Arts Research Centre (Tutke) in collaboration with the Comparative Dramaturgy and Performance Research Programme of the Theatre Academy, University of the Arts Helsinki, are arranging the eight international conference on artistic research

SOLVITUR AMBULANDO ‘solved by moving’ 
an ambulatory colloquium & laboratory 

Conference dates: 24-26 August 2023
Venue: University of the Arts Helsinki Theatre Academy, Haapaniemenkatu 6, 00530 Helsinki

Registration is open from 12 June to 13 August 2023 (EEST +3:00 at 23:59).

CARPA8 combines colloquium and laboratory, by bringing together two processual activities and keeping them in motion: dramaturgy and artistic research. The event, dynamic in form and content, aims to combine embodied artistic practice with timely conceptualisation and theorisation to enquire what happens to artistic research when it takes a dramaturgical twist. We will assemble artists and practitioners from the performing arts field with innovators, researchers and theorists to explore, experiment and discuss how expanded notions of dramaturgy and artistic research cross-fertilise each other and expand into other fields.
