HOW NOT TO MISS THE 'MISSING' IN THE UNIVERSE AROUND US

Utterly colorful and yet chaotic

A life born out of debt as symbiotic

Caged in green lush, more or less as a unique…

OPEN CALL: Symposium Performance Philosophy School of Athens II

Athens, 23-24 September 2017

Performance Philosophy School of Athens II, is a two-day symposium, organised by Stefania Mylona and Stella Dimitrakopoulou, in association with the Performance Philosophy network. This year will focus on Performance Dance, performances of all kinds that stand in-between dance and performance art or more broadly the visual arts world. The symposium invites workshops, performances and papers that examine the relationship between dance movement, visual art and philosophy. Some of the questions to be addressed are the following:

• In what ways do dance movement and the visual arts intertwine?

• How do dance images make us think?

• How does sculpture come into play?

• How does the relationship between dance movement, visual arts and philosophy benefit or influence these fields?

• What are the aesthetics of performance dance?

• What might performance dance offer the emerging field of performance philosophy and vice versa?

We invite artists, choreographers, dancers and scholars both from the dance world and from the visual arts world to showcase their work, to offer workshops, performances or papers that address performance dance in relation to performance philosophy.

Please send your proposals to ppsoaii@gmail.com by the 31st of July 2017.

Stefania Mylona, artist and scholar in performance philosophy and performance dance studied communication at the American College of Greece, performed with Magnitis Dance Company and was awarded the national diploma in dance studies in Athens (GR). On a scholarship awarded from The State Scholarships Foundation of Greece (I.K.Y.) she completed an MA in European Dance Theatre Practices at Trinity LABAN and a practice-based PhD in performance studies entitled Dancing Sculptures: Contractions of an Intercorporeal Aesthetic (2011) at the University of Surrey. During her PhD study, she lectured in dance at the Dance and Cultures HE program and became an associate of The British Higher Education Academy. She received the Glynne Wickham Award from SCUDD (UK) and the Graduate Award from SDHS (US) while presenting her research and performance practice internationally. In 2014 she organized Performance Philosophy School of Athens, a two-day symposium in association with Performance Philosophy. Currently she is working as a freelance movement teacher, artist and scholar.

Stella Dimitrakopoulou, a performance artist and researcher, co-runs the research project 'Philosophy on our feet' (2014) within which she has co-convened several Performance Philosophy workshops in Athens, London, Southampton and Trondheim. She is co-founder of the performance collective Trio (2009), a member of LUNA PARK Dance Company and often collaborates with other artists as assistant director (LUNA PARK 2017, Anna Adhal 2015, Tino Sehgal 2014) and dramaturg (A priori dance co. 2016). In her practice-based PhD inCreative Practice: Dance (Trinity Laban, 2016) she looked into ‘(Ιl)legitimate Performances: Copying, Authorship and the Canon’ whereas during her MA in Dance Theatre: The body in performance she worked with food as a means of investigating the intermingling of public and private spaces. As performer she has worked with Les Gens d’Uterpan (Documenta 14, 2017), Tino Sehgal (Palais De Tokyo 2016, TATE Modern 2012), William Hunt (Siobhan Davies Studios 2013) and others. IKY, NEON and DanceWEB have supported her academic and artistic work.
