Chamada à participação – Generative Indirections

28 Jun 2013

Uma chamada à participação aberta até ao dia 13 de Julho:


Generative Indirections

Performance Studies international regional cluster

September 5 to 8, 2013, Montemor-o-Novo, Portugal

a baldio event

Researchers and practitioners of performing arts, visual arts and other arts that perform ideas and worlds are invited to participate in the residency Generative Indirections – Performance Studies International event, a PSi (Performance Studies International) Regional Research Cluster to be held in a 3 day event at Espaço do Tempo (Convento da Saudação), Montemor-o-Novo, Portugal.

The event will have the format of a residency, organised in plenary discussions and workshops. At the end of the day, keynote lectures, open to the general public, will take place at baldios or commons, in abandoned public land, in a performative gesture.

Researching the relations between ongoing artistic, social and political forms of life, Generative Indirections intends to explore the potentialities of performance studies in the critical space between the Social Sciences, Humanities and Art, and give voice to counter hegemonic epistemologies, blurring theory and practice. “In-direction”, thus, becomes a magnetic field, moving between theory and practice, challenging disciplinary boundaries in order to question how Performance Studies can be received in Portugal.

We find it relevant to create a dialogue between Performance Studies and three texts written in different types of Portuguese, from three different parts of a post-colonial world: Epistemologies of the South, Boaventura Sousa Santos (Portugal), Neo-Animist Decalogue, Ruy Duarte de Carvalho (Angola) and Anthropophagic Manifest, Oswald de Andrade (Brasil). These texts will be our starting point for this meeting. They invite us to think about the premises of contemporaneity, in Portuguese, from a non-Eurocentric perspective.

The idea of hospitality, a “doing-together”, is the modus operandi for this international event, through which we hope to build a dialogue whose boundaries are necessarily broad. We ask how Performance Studies can currently be received in Portugal, questioning the context of where we come from and the productive possibilities of what we can be.

Deadline for submission:  July 13, 2013

Please submit your application to: Pease, insert on the subject “Generative Indirections proposal, Montemor 2013”
