Reflections after Performance Philosophy at Trinity Laban - March 2013

Posted on March 28, 2013 at 16:14 1 Comment

Jonathan Clark kindly invited me to give a talk on PP at Trinity Laban yesterday evening - a really welcome opportunity, for me at least, to think through my sense of where Performance Philosophy is at thus far and where it might go in future. In particular though it was great to meet so many researchers from across the disciplines, though particularly Music and Dance, who are concerned with a lot of the same issues that have been bugging me for years. We talked a lot, for instance, about…

The limits of 'field thinking'

Posted on January 3, 2013 at 10:47 1 Comment

I have had the pleasure to spend much of the last couple of weeks reading through the great quality and quantity of proposals that we received for the Performance Philosophy conference in April. (NB. Decisions will be out by Jan 15th once the organizing committee have had a chance to meet and confer).



What was fantastic and thought-provoking was the number of papers that really dealt with the questions of the CFP head on - particularly perhaps the question of what the future of this… Continue

Interdisciplinary anxiety

Posted on September 5, 2012 at 18:17 2 Comments

I am waiting in Euston Station to catch a train to Manchester to go to the SEP-FEP conference: the joint conference of the Society for European Philosophy and the Forum for European Philosophy where John Mullarkey and I are going to give a joint presentation on Laruelle and Kaprow, non-philosophy meets nonart and the nonhuman.

 

And I am having, again, a bout of interdisciplinary anxiety.

 

In part, this follows some very interesting discussions on an earlier…

A Performance Philosophy blog, Day One: "The Future of the Field"

Posted on August 19, 2012 at 11:17 2 Comments

There are many admirable bloggers in contemporary philosophy - John Protevi and Levi Bryant among them.

I am starting my own with considerable trepidation and expecting that I may not be able to stick it out for long. I suspect I may lack the confidence, and be generally too self-doubting for this particular form. I spend a lot of time worrying - productively and unproductively - about the words I put into print and those I deliver in public forums. Whereas the blog seems to require a…

Dear laura,

How is it going ? Are you teaching in England or studying? I might go to Colombia to do a Phd in Esthétique, the sooner, the better. I had Laruelle as a teacher!

Have a nice day

Thanks Laura,

I'll let you know detailed timings nearer the event. Now I know you are possibly able to come on 2nd, I will try and arrange for "Insect Hotel" to be happening then, (2.00pm - 8.00pm). To be honest, the International Collective of Ecological Actors is just whichever mates turn up on the day!! But I am thinking it would be a good name for my new theatre company.

All the best,

Bruno

Laura, thanks for your lecture which was brilliant. And such great technique. Eye contact with audience very impressive. I've downloaded your powerpoint so thanks for that. I feel like there is a huge amount to absorb here. But I wanted to contribute something to the site debate. I've organised a free Little Ecological Arts Festival - LEAF, in an open access public space in Forest Hill, SE London. (1st - 4th May).  I'm facilitating, (Not performing. Does it therefore count as practical research? Another question.), some performances/installations that are attempting to give attention to things. I've attached the poster and the blog is here:

http://littleecologicalart.blogspot.co.uk

By the way, I would have come to the conference but the show in Bristol is clashing. In any case, your lecture has given me so much to think about, I need a bit of time before I feel that I can contribute much to discussions.

All the best and look forward to having a chat sometime. I'm sure the conference will be extraordinary. Bruno

Why thank you!

Thank you Laura! Awesome site-administrating... I know how much work it is as I run a similar site. Kindest regards.

Thank you Laura for your message! That would be with pleasure! I hope you are well too. Liza
