16. & 17.2.2017 @10-15 / Two days workshop
The starting point of the workshop is the notion of inner stage developed within a theoretical and practical framework of a possible relationship between psychoanalysis, education and performance. It calls into question some points, for example that performance takes place in the purely physical world, questioning the dichotomy of inner and outer and underlining the importance of “relation” which is present within the filed of performance. The presence of a body on a stage and as well the presence of spectators will be considered as modality of relation. And this relation will be articulated trough the act of conversation and listening.
In order to carry out this work disposition is more important than a technique or particular knowledge. It’s important during the sessions that one’s attention is engaged and one is willing to share one’s thoughts and emotions. The sincerity and dedication with which the work is carried out are perhaps the only indispensable conditions.
