Registration open: International Conference "Theatre Between Tradition and Contemporaneity"
From the organisers:
"Theatre Between Tradition and Contemporaneity" (16-20 December 2017, Retzhof Castle, Austria) is an annual international multidisciplinary conference researching the Bridge between Tradition and Contemporaneity in performing arts.
Performing arts in the era of constantly evolving technology - traditional forms of performing arts constantly reconsidered and reshaped by contemporary practitioners.
Performing arts traditions influencing, enhancing and co-mingling in contemporary performing arts processes and inspiring our artistic expression -
what means "traditional" and "contemporary" for performers, artists and audience today?
Astonishing phenomena of arts appearing on the intersection of cultures,
when the borders of countries become conditional -
getting inspired by the unique connection and stepping beyond usual practices.
Traditions as the impulse to search for the universal “intercultural” language in contemporary performance and artistic expression.
Traditions as the inexhaustible source of inspiration for contemporary generation of artists and firm foundation for intercultural dialogue.
The conference offers the unique opportunity:
- to exchange experience and share ideas in contemporary performing arts education and training, rehearsal process and performance practice;
- to become familiar with diverse methods and techniques in contemporary performing arts inspired and formed in the connection with the world traditional heritage;
- to meet colleagues from all over the world, establish new contacts and lay the foundation for future networking and collaboration in multicultural and multilingual artistic environment.
The conference creates the unique encounter of different arts in multicultural and multilingual artistic environment and offers a great platform for performers, performing arts educators and teachers to find new collaboration partners from all continents!
The conference working language is English.
