Aarhus University, Denmark
Rethink Theatre, Performance and Dramaturgy Studies – Field of research, Core concepts and core issues

As a field of knowledge and expertise, how is Theatre, Dramaturgy and Performance Studies able to meet the challenges of the world today?

In an attempt to re-sist the increasing pressures on the humanities from within our discipline – and with a spin on RETHINK, the theme of Aarhus as the European Capital of Culture 2017 –this conference engages with the state-of-the-art in the Nordic and Baltic countries:

  • How are core concepts, such as the work of art, the audience, dramaturgy, theatricality, theatre history, etc. being re-examined?
  • What are the ways in which we (re-)engage methodologies of experimentation, documentation, analysis and dissemination?
  • How are existing divides being addressed (or perhaps re-paired) and new partnerships being built inside and outside of academia?
  • In what ways does the current condition re-shape how we research and teach theatre, dramaturgy and performance studies across educational programs?

The conference overlaps with International Living Theatre (ILT) Festival (May 18 – 21, 2017) under Aarhus as European Capital of Culture in 2017.ANTS – Association of Nordic Theatre Scholars.

Keynote speakers

  • Paul Allain, Professor of Theatre and Perfomance and currently Associate Dean of research and innovation at the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Kent, Canterbury, UK.
  • Imanuel Schipper, lecturer and researcher at different universities and art academies in Germany and Switzerland.
  • Anneli Saro, Professor of Theatre Research and Vice Dean for Academic Affairs of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at the University of Tartu (Estonia).
