CURATING CONTEMPORARY PERFORMANCE : MAKING A SCENE?
To coincide with Project Art Centre’s publication of No More Drama, a new collection of writings about the shape of contemporary performance, this symposium sets out to consider the changing stages and shared concerns of alternative theatre.
When theatre makers at home and abroad no longer consider that the play is ‘the thing’, how do reality, documentary techniques and the audience conspire to make meaning with the stage? The voices of artist, curator and critic combine to ask whether theory or practice comes first, where the characteristics of alternative performance are born, how experiments turn into movements and where Irish theatre may be heading.
