Following three examples of his recent projects he is in involved in, Peter Stamer will provide some insight in his PRACTICE: a concept understood as PERFORMATIVE RESEARCH AND CHOREOGRAPHIC TOOLS IN CONTEMPORARY ENVIRONMENTS.
In his presentation, Peter wants to to look at the following stakes:
1) what is PERFORMATIVE RESEARCH in contemporary performance practice? (The question of KNOWLEDGE in theory and practice);
2) what can be understood by CHOREOGRAPHIC TOOLS? (The question of METHODOLOGIES);
3) how to conceive of space as CONTEMPORARYENVIRONMENT? (The question of SETTING).
