MA in Ecology and Contemporary Performance – a master’s degree in University of the Arts Helsinki – will host a open class during the New Performance Turku Festival, in various locations.
The open class will be held on Thursday 6th October and Friday 7th October, from 9am onwards. The programme will be in English.
MAECP attempts to respond to the questions and needs raised by the current ecological situation that implicates all species, as well as the current shifts taking place in the field of performing arts, from the perspective of relations and dependencies. MAECP investigates and develops the methodologies, practices and theoretical bases of contemporary performance while developing new forms of collaboration, interaction and knowledge production in between the art, the research and the sciences and within a posthumanist framework. It encourages the students to review and reformulate existing practices, to experiment with and invent new forms of performance making and to maintain openness not only towards various forms of art but also towards different fields and discourses.
