The Expanded Theatricalities Chair


Curated by the collective ARTEA, this Chair analyses the thought inhabiting stage and performance practices, encouraging the listening and dialogue that materialises between artistic practices and modes of social theatricality. The aim is to punctuate the political potency of theatre, choreography and action art, taking into consideration that which is inherent in all of them: the modes of collaborative production and the simultaneous presence of bodies, differentiated and individualised, turned into places that posit discourses, the manifestation of forms of dissidence and the emergence of desire as the driving force of life. 

At a present time dominated by violence logics on bodies, exploitation, disciplining and the instability of lives, the Chair is set up as a chance to decry and critically analyse forms of submission and exploitation. Above all, from the materiality of art-making situated between chorographic, theatre and performative research, social intervention and political action. In short, an invitation to cross-examine those practices which put forward theatricality as an instrument for rethinking co-existence and discord.
