Situated Agencies: Mediating places through the body

Nathalie S. Fari, performance practices, Academy of Music and Drama

Situated Agencies: Mediating places through the Body examines how site-specific performance practice can be addressed through an embodied and documentary approach. Drawing from place-based research, performance documentation and posthumanism, this PhD project has carried out a series of performance laboratories in collaboration with artist researchers at two specific places: Götaplatsen in Gothenburg and ”Praça Mauá” in Rio de Janeiro. At the core of these laboratories, was to explore the relationship between embodiment and audiovisuality, especially by experimenting with how the audiovisual traces of a laboratory work can serve both as data and a creative source for developing screen performance as research.
