Workshop | Aspects of the Street, Theater, and Performance

May 07, 2024 - May 08, 2024

Event in English spoken language | free admission | registration required | no barrier-free access

The workshop considers how the street relates to theater and performance and how these relations have transformed from the 20th century to the present. We assume that the street, theater and performance stand not least for different forms of the public sphere, which on one hand are intertwined in many ways and on the other hand are undergoing complex changes: How do these changes in dynamics between the street and performance present themselves from the perspective of our respective projects? What concerns us in our respective research practices in investigating the street and performance, the street and theater? What political, social and aesthetic problems do we currently see in these dynamics? How can newer, especially digital public spheres be conceived with regard to the relationships between the street and performance/theater?
