|Summer Seminars 2012|
Venue: Instytut Grotowskiego, Rynek-Ratusz 27
Summer Seminars is a two-week programme of lectures and workshops in English, aimed at all interested participants from around the world who want to work with renowned scholars, expand their knowledge of theatre and performance, and develop their skills of critical analysis of contemporary culture, as well as to study the tradition and the present of Polish theatre, especially the work of Jerzy Grotowski.
In 2012 we have invited two prominent scholars who bring new perspectives to performance research, Prof. Jean Marie-Pradier (Université Paris 8) and Prof. Jon McKenzie (University of Wisconsin). In the first week we will host a series of workshops with Prof. Jean-Marie Pradier, the founder of ethnoscenology, an original research perspective exploring cultural performance practices, especially in traditional cultures. The second week will include workshops with Prof. Jon McKenzie, the author of the influential book Perform or Else and one of the most important exponents of contemporary performance studies. Both our international guests will give open public lectures.
In addition to the workshops with Professors Pradier and McKenzie, we will hold lectures and presentations on Polish theatre and performance. In the first week, Prof. Dariusz Kosiński (Jagiellonian University, Grotowski Institute) will give a series of lectures on the work of Jerzy Grotowski. In the second week, contemporary Polish performance will be discussed by one of its leading figures, Joanna Warsza.
In addition to these four series, we will present a number of closed screenings of documentary footage of the work of Jerzy Grotowski and his Laboratory Theatre and of the most important phenomena of contemporary Polish theatre. Time permitting, project participants will also have the opportunity to conduct their own research utilizing materials from the Grotowski Institute’s Archive.
Summer Seminars are designed for a closed group of up to 20 participants selected through an application process. The price of a two-week session is €350 (€200 for Central and Eastern European participants).
More information will be coming soon to our website.
