3rd Summer seminar at Concordia University:
Writing (about/on/with/at/the) contemporary circus
A Seminar on Research-Creation, Creative practices and Meaning-Making
2 to 12 July 2019 in Montréal.
Applications deadline: 15 March 2019.
To be considered for funding (tuition waiver), deadline: March 4th.
Where, who?: Concordia’s Faculty of Arts and Science International Summer Graduate Seminars is proposing a third contemporary circus-themed seminar taught by Prof. Leroux and assisted by Alisan Funk. This seminar will be held in collaboration with Montréal Complètement Cirque’s International Market of Contemporary Circus.
Description of seminar: This interdisciplinary seminar will provide an opportunity to learn, explore and refine research methods in the performing arts with a focus on contemporary circus and physical theatre. We will have discussions of form and discipline, method, hybridity, writing the body, writing from place, strategies and choices and working with or as performers, and developing the tools to discuss the creative process.
The seminar will be constructed on the principle of experiential learning and self-reflexivity concerning the creative process. The seminar will run all day, every weekday. Evenings, students will be encouraged to attend performances of Montréal Complètement cirque in order to discuss the work with the group the next day.
Participants: This is a graduate seminar that has also been opened to professional performing arts practitioners wishing to explore the junction of academic and artistic pursuits. Participants have a fascinating variety of experiences, both artistic and intellectual, for the most part they have experience in circus, theatre, music, video art or dance. Given the diversity of experiences and academic background, we’ll encourage an environment of debate and discussion but also of respect. Students will be expected to attend all morning and afternoon lectures and many of the evening performances as well as to contribute to their blog and experiential research project.
