Very interested to learn of the work of your community. My colleague and friend Chiara Cappelletto and I are currently teaching (with the artist David Levine) an experimental grad seminar at Princeton that engages many of the questions that I think are of interest to the "Performance Philosophy" cohort.  The class deals with the relationship between pedagogy and theatricality.  There is a website that summarizes the work in progress:…

Philosophy in Experiment

Philosophy in experiment is a group of researchers and actors of authorial theatre whose main aim is the cultivation of philosophical thinking, developed together with the cultivation of self-perception and expression. We are interested in the space of experiment, an open field, where experience returns to its foundation which consists of experimentation or trying out (experiri). Experience of this sort includes in itself the state of being moved by sense which does not give itself to…See More

Theatre and Philosophical Principles

Theatre practitioners have often underpinned their training and performance practices with principles. Those principles can often be defined and described as being philosophical in nature and focus. Obvious names are Grotowski, Gordon-Craig, Suzuki and Artaud, to name but a few.This group explores theatrical practices based around or culminating in philosophical principles, which often begin not as philosophy, but rather emerge from theatrical practice itself.See More

Playful communication at Studio ALTA

September 16, 2016 to September 18, 2016
This exploratory event brings together three projects that offer different perspectives at the question of the encounter with the other and define the so called ludic subjectivity. Through the study of communication, boundaries and ludic stance and with the aid of practical approaches of investigation combined with theoretical reflection, the three laboratories create a colourful mosaic of how to understand playful communication. Full participation in the three workshops is not a condition but…See More
