Reading Butler: speculations on the limitations of Brecht
The focus of this article is on integrating the contributions made by Butler’s work to an understanding and expansion of performance and, in particular, what is called the Brechtian method.

I was born and raised in Germany where I studied music and dramatic arts. I worked for many years as a theatre director in Germany, but in 1994 I followed an inner impulse and moved to Athens, Greece. I now work in Greece as a theatre director and acting teacher at several drama schools.
I have always considered Greece the birthplace of western theatre, and Athens seemed like the right place to research the universal theatrical language and perhaps to discover the secrets behind the…Continue

Edinburgh Critical Studies in Shakespeare and Philosophy
Editor, Kevin Curran (University of North Texas)
“Edinburgh Critical Studies in Shakespeare and Philosophy” takes seriously the speculative and world-making properties of Shakespeare’s art.

Before I begin I must address an apology to you all. Perhaps you all have already lived this particular situation: you have pages and pages regarding your investigation, they seem to have a logic within them, how concepts play with others or are connected to others, but when faced with a strict economy of time and you need only to address one…Continue

while i'm waiting for my PhD defense, I decided to move to Berlin (11th of June) and start a new life. This to say, to all our Berliner friends, I would like to meet them, discuss some ideas with them, and even help with their work and research if they would be interested. I'm trying to develop further the problem questioned on my PhD for a post-doc fellowship, but for most important is to be close to people working on performance philosophy. So, please get in touch…Continue

Artist-Philosophers. Philosophy as Arts-Based Research
From the very beginning of European philosophy in ancient Greece the relation between philosophy and arts has been highly problematic. On the one hand we find “artist-philosophers” like Plato or Nietzsche, whose philosophical investigations used artistic practices to demonstrate their thoughts; on the other hand philosophy has been extremly hostile to such…Continue
