The Contemporary Art Forum is an annual platform of discussion about timely and pressing issues in contemporary art and education. This year’s forum explores ways in which contemporary theater, performance, and non-art practices are redefining the notion of spectatorship or audience. Additional topics will include the influence of pedagogical ideas in the construction of performative experiences, the relationship between author and a collaborating public, and other common concerns shared by the spheres of theater, performance art, and activism.

Interfaces of Performance

Interfaces of Performance, edited by Janis Jefferies, Goldsmiths, University of London, Maria Chatzichristodoulou, University of Hull and Rachel Zerihan, Queen Mary, University of London, UK; Ashgate, November 2009.

This collection of essays and interviews investigates current practices that expand our understanding and experience of performance through the use of state-of-the-art technologies. It brings together leading practitioners, writers and curators who explore the intersections between theatre, performance and digital technologies, challenging expectations and furthering discourse across the disciplines. As technologies become increasingly integrated into theatre and performance, Interfaces of Performance revisits key elements of performance practice in order to investigate emergent paradigms. To do this five concepts integral to the core of all performance are foregrounded, namely environments, bodies, audiences, politics of practice and affect. Continue reading

Live Stage: Surfing Disciplines [uk London + onine]

Center for Contemporary & Digital Performance Research Seminar Series presents Surfing Disciplines: From Antonin Artaud to neuroplastic arts? by Gordana Novakovic :: February 10, 2010; 2:00 pm (GMT) :: Drama Studio Gaskell Bld. 048, School of Arts, Brunel University, Uxbridge/West London, Cleveland Road + webcast at dance tech net TV.

The digital revolution is changing the nature of our perceptual processes, and this in turn is changing our conscious experience of the physical world, inducing changes in cognition on a scale that is still unknown. As inhabitants of the modern city we are in constant interaction, both active and passive, with digital technology. These facts concern all of us in different ways, but from my own perspective I want to ask: how does all this affect the artist? Continue reading

“Claiming Its Space: Machinima” by Michael Nitsche

Claiming Its Space: Machinima by Michael Nitsche, Dichtung-Digital #37, 2007:

ABSTRACT: Although machinima has grown exponentially, it remains a largely undefined digital artistic practice in-between existing traditions. Machinima makers freely sample/ combine/ and break elements of traditional media. They “play” their references. This essay does not attempt to fix machinima to any single definition but will identify the intermedia relations to better position machinima into the digital media landscape. The argument will target three main influences: film, television, and theatrical performance. To exemplify these points the essay will discuss exemplary and relevant machinima pieces. It puts emphasis on the real-time aspects in production and play back to highlight the key specifics of this relatively new format.

Die Welt als Bühne (The World as Stage) [de Berlin]

The World as Stage :: November 21, 2009 – January 10, 2010 :: Opening: November 20; 7:00 pm :: Neuer Berliner Kunstverein n.b.k., Chausseestraße 128/129, 10115 Berlin, Germany.

Streets, squares, parks, supermarkets, Internet portals, and other sites have become stages of urban life that allow us to display our everyday actions and behaviors. Many artists today work with the theatrical aspect of staging the self in everyday life. The question of the theatrical has taken on a new relevance due to the multiple forms of self-staging and lifestyle. If everyone plays the main role in his or her own lifestyle film, what is the role of art? Continue reading

Aaron Landsman’s “Appointment” by Andrea Kleine

From Aaron Landsman’s “Appointment” by Andrea Kleine, NYFA Current:

Landsman devised these Appointment sessions as a series of repeatable 12-minute pieces that take place in actual office settings. Designed for a single audience member who is put in the precarious position of continually making choices about whether or not, or how, to participate with the actors, Appointment turns the expectation of being a passive performance-watcher on its head. Working with three playwright/director collaborators — Brent Green, Sibyl Kempson, and Daniel Alexander Jones, (who created the Blondell/Julia piece, performed by Julia Jarcho and Stacey Robinson) — Landsman provided each of them with a short set of requirements: every appointment should include a question, a prolonged silence, etc., but left the writing and directing up to them. Landsman will alter aspects of Appointment as it travels to different locales — Norway, Austin, and Philadelphia are in the works — thus developing one kind of model for sustainable theater.
