TAKING POSITION | THE POLITICAL AND PLACE, Experimental Course in Performance Studies (ECPS) is designed as a proposal of encounter with-in study, a process of study for encounters to be, throughout the convergence of reading practices, discussion, research and experimentation: a three month course to experiment with tools, methodologies, issues, concerns, problems and limitations related to Performance Studies, in order to interrogate our present. Emphasizing the contingency of critical thought production, the course is characterized by a tight relation between the performative and the experimental, with a strong focus on the conversation between the several fields at stake: theatre, dance, music, performance, architecture, anthropology, philosophy, politics, history, critical theory, literature. It encompasses a continuous workshop intended as a common thread throughout the course, and three thematic axes.
