All in: Aesthetics and Methods in Inclusive Performing Arts. International symposium May 8, Cologne, Germany
Symposium focuses on the conditions for designing inclusive artistic work, specifically dance and (music) theatre, and its aesthetic opportunities. During lecture performances, workshops and rehearsal visits there will be raised the following questions: What new methods and ways of expression are created in the artistic work of mixed-abled dance and (music) theatre companies? How do they promote diversity among the audience? How do assistive devices become stylistic devices and what is the role of new technologies?
Time: 08 May 2018
