Open Call: Presentations for the seventh Annual Conference of the School of Performing Arts (University of Malta)

21 November 2019

ELIA members School of Performing Arts, University of Malta and Centre for Dance Research, Coventry University have issued an open call for presentations for the seventh annual conference of the School of Performing Arts; 'Performance Knowledges: Transmission, Composition, Praxis'.

The conference, which will take place 11-13 March 2020, considers knowledge in relation to performing arts practices. More specifically, the conference aims to explore, question, and discuss the different types of ‘knowledges’ that emerge from or are involved in performing arts practices including creation, production, performance, and spectatorship.

Presentation topics might include, but are not limited to, issues and themes of performance knowledges in relation to practices, methodologies, and technologies. We welcome submissions across a number of areas that address the multifaceted understandings of knowledge as emergent in theatre, dance, and music, including but not limited to:
  • the artist’s perspective on languaging and documenting practices
  • embodied cognition and moving beyond dualism in the practice of the performing arts
  • problematising hegemonic knowledges, implications for performing arts
  • training processes and compositional strategies as intangible heritage
  • practice turn in contemporary theory, communities and ecologies of practice
  • habits, skills and contexts for tacit knowledge acquisition and transmission
  • perspectives on and from diverse atypical modes and mixed abilities
  • historical, analytical, and theoretical understandings of embodiment in the performing arts
  • case studies of creators, performers, spectators, and other agents of performance
  • technologisation and the impact of digitisation on performance practices
  • translation, transformation and/ or appropriation of performance forms

The submission deadline is 16 December 2019.
