Tutkimuspäivä lähestyy – Research Day Approaching

(scroll down for English)

TERVETULOA viidenteen tutkimuspäiväämme, joka keskittyy esityksen ja instituutioiden suhteeseen. Tule mukaan 1 marraskuuta 2019  Taideyliopiston Teatterikorkeakouluun, Auditorio 1:seen (Haapaniemenkatu 6, Helsinki).

Instituution esitys, esitys instituutiossa ja esitys instituutiona

Miten ajatella erilaisia esitysten ja instituutioiden välisiä suhteita? Esityksiä tehdään enemmän tai vähemmän esityksille soveltuvissa tai niille omistetuissa instituutioissa. Instituutiot esittävät ja panevat toimeen omia  linjauksiaan ja strategioitaan esitysten suhteen. Esitys ja performanssi ovat itsessään instituutioita.

Neljässä keskustelussa kukin tutkimusryhmän jäsenistä keskustelee kutsumansa vieraan tai tutkijakollegan kanssa aiheesta, joka on olennainen heidän erityiselle tavalleen lähestyä esitystä. Vieraamme ovat Jana UnmüssigSuvi Salmenniemi, Mari ToivanenJussi Koitela ja Kira O’Reilly. Jokainen vuoropuhelu avautuu myös keskusteluksi aiheesta yleisön kanssa. Toivomme kriittisiä kommentteja ja aktiivista osallistumista jokaiselta, joka on kiinnostunut keskustelemaan esityksistä instituutioissa, instituutioiden esityksistä ja esityksestä tai performanssista instituutiona. Keskustelut käydään englanniksi. Alustava ohjelma tässä alla…

WELCOME to our fifth research day, which focuses on performance and institutions. Join us on 1 November 2019 at the Theatre Academy of the University of the Arts, Auditorium 1 (Haapaniemenkatu 6, Helsinki).

Performance of/in/as an Institution

How can we think of the various relationships between performances and institutions? Performances are created in institutions more or less devoted or conducive to performance. Institutions also perform their various policies and strategies regarding performance. Performance is, in itself, an institution.

In four conversations, each of the members of the research project discuss with their invited research partners topics relevant for their particular approach to performance. Our guests are Jana UnmüssigSuvi Salmenniemi, Mari ToivanenJussi Koitela and Kira O’Reilly. Each conversation opens to a discussion on the topic with the audience. We welcome critical comments and participation from anyone interested in discussing performance in institutions, the performance of institutions, or performance as an institution.

How to do things with performance?

Not only what should be done, but how it should be done is today a question as relevant as ever. And some argue we should actually do less, and think a bit more, for example how we do what we do. In the research project How to do things with performance, we have focused on performance in a broad sense, asking what can be or could be done with performance and how.

How to do things with performance? -research project is proud to present the 11th issue of Ruukku – Studies in Artistic Research devoted to the theme. How to do things with performance? And we are proud to collaborate with Publics in organising a seminar-party to launch it.

Contributors to the issue include Mieko Kanno, Anu Vehviläinen, Elisabeth Belgrano, Lea and Pekka Kantonen, Elina Seye, Stephen Bain as well as the editors Annette Arlander, Hanna Järvinen, Tero Nauha and Pilvi Porkola.

Come and celebrate the publication of How to do things with performance? Ruukku 11 with us at Publics on 23 May at 6 pm, address: Sturenkatu 37-41 4b 00550 Helsinki

Call for proposals: Performance pedagogy 16.11. 2018

Research Day III: Performance Pedagogy

Call for proposals

The research project How to do things with performance? organises a third research day focusing on performance pedagogy with professor Gavin Butt as key note speaker on 16 November 2018at University of the Arts Theatre Academy, Auditorium 1.

What are the pedagogical dimensions of performance? Lectures and demonstrations are performances in themselves, but what about the pedagogy of performance and performance art? What can be done for, in, and with performance in a pedagogical situation and what could pedagogy give to performance practice? If performance is a site for learning, how does learning take place in it? What do we learn in performance?

In the research project How to do things with performance? (2016-2020) funded by the Academy of Finland we have looked at pedagogy and performance mainly in the edited collection Performance Artist’s Workbook. On teaching and learning performance art – essays and exercises(Porkola 2017). Influential studies of the pedagogy of performance art such as Performing Pedagogy – Toward an Art of Politicsby Charles Garoian (1999), The Analysis of Performance Art – A Guide to its Theory and Practiceby Anthony Howell (1999) or “Some Thoughts on Teaching Performance Art in Five Parts” by Marilyn Arsem (2011) as well as anthologies such as Stucky and Wimmer’s Teaching Performance Studies(2002) form the background to our discussions.

Despite our interest in performance art we understand performance in a wide sense. Performance studies, performance research and performance-as-research can be understood as the study of various practices and processes besides cultural and artistic performances. As art making in artistic research, performance or performing can function as a central research method or as one way of presenting research results. (Allegue et al. 2009; Hunter & Riley 2009; Kershaw & Nicholson 2011; Nelson 2013; Arlander et.al.2018) Here we are especially interested in the links between pedagogy and performance.

Our key note speaker, professor Gavin Butt,is a transdisciplinary scholar working across the areas of performance studies, queer studies, visual culture, and popular music. Before taking up the Attenborough Chair in Drama: Theatre and Performance at Sussex in September 2016, he was Professor of Visual Cultures and Performance at Goldsmiths, University of London. Butt was the co-director of Performance Matters (2009-2013), a creative research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, bringing together artists, curators, activists, performance organizers, and academics to investigate the cultural value of performance. He is co-editor of Post-Punk Then and Now, Repeater, 2016. Butt is currently completing a book Being in a Band: The Leeds Art Experiment and the Making of Alternative Culture 1972-1985, which explores the generative nature of collective creation on the eve of neoliberalism. It focuses on the post-punk scene in 1970s and 1980s Leeds, and on group-belonging in theatre and performance, visual art and music making. It is a case study of the radical potential of higher education at a time when access to art school and university was free to all.

We invite everybody interested in the connections of pedagogy and performance art, live art, performance-as-research, research on and in performance, or performance studies to debate these questions and ponder how pedagogy and performance are entangled. How and in what way are things done with performancepedagogy? What can be done with performance art that cannot be done with other forms of performance within a pedagogical situation? What kind of change does performance pedagogy generate?

We are especially interested in performance lectures, demonstrations, interventions, pedagogical experiments, that is, performance pedagogy in action! Please, send abstracts (max 250 words) of proposals for 15 -20 min. contributions and a brief bio, no later than 14 October 2018 to annette.arlander@uniarts.fi

Welcome!

Annette Arlander, Hanna Järvinen, Tero Nauha and Pilvi Porkola

RUUKKU #11 numeron teemana on Miten tehdä asioita esityksellä? Kiinnostus esityksiin, toimintaan, käytäntöihin ja muutokseen yhdistää taiteellista tutkimusta ja esitystutkimusta. Esitys tai esittäminen voivat toimia keskeisenä tutkimusmenetelmänä, tutkimuksen mediumina, tai osana tutkimustulosten esittelyä. Miten esityksellä tutkiminen aktuaalisesti tapahtuu? Mitä ja miten voimme tehdä asioita esityksellä?
