I just came across Denis Beaubois, an Australian multidisciplinary artist whose work, Currency - Division of Labor might be of interest to researchers here.

Event Description

 Performance Philosophy

Dramaturgical Paradigms of Text, Space and Body 

The event is free and open to the public

Thursday, May 8, 2014 | 3-5 pm | Segal Theatre 

The steadily growing interest in the interactions – in both directions – between the discursive practices of Drama/Theatre/Performance and Philosophy is already a fact. 

Performance Philosophy at about now has over 1.300 members. This website is defined as 'A research network for the field of Performance Philosophy' and enables direct contacts between researchers and practicing theatre and performance artists interested in the broad range of issues and activities related to the 'thinking' of drama, theatre and performance, on the one hand and the 'doing' of philosophy, on the other, as well as their many intermediaries. In which sense do the performing arts think? Can philosophy act and perform? Is there transference of knowledge between the discursive practices of the performing arts and philosophy? And how does the notion of dramaturgy problematize and confront these questions? The seminar/workshop, featuring leading scholars and practitioners working in this broader 'field' seeks to highlight some of its distinctive features with special emphasis on the notion of dramaturgy – of text, space and body – as a strategy for bridging theory and practice, while at the same time 'minding' the gap between them. 

Participants: Peter Eckersall, CUNY Graduate Center, Pauliina Hulkko, University of Tampere, Finland, Esa Kirkkopelto, Theatre Academy, University of the Arts Helsinki, Finland, Paul Kottman, The New School for Social Research. 

Freddie Rokem, Tel Aviv University, who is Visiting Scholar at the Martin E. Segal Center has curated this event and he will moderate the discussion.
