Radical Elders - A gathering of artists
HiØ/Norwegian Theatre Academy invites visiting artists to present, discuss and exchange their artistic legacies and experiences as elders in the field of Performance.
This gathering on November 23rd and 24th creates a space for reflecting with the invited guests on possible futures through an embodied relation to the past. Formats include sharing food, discussion, listening, scholarly and artistic presentations and participatory actions. Participants will also include students, teachers and other artists in the field who acknowledge the role legacy and intergenerational relations play in their work. Staff and Students of NTA are central to this event, as the notion of intergenerational and intercultural meeting, discussion and practice is given priority.
A central aspect of the meeting is a presentation of the results of a 10 day first time collaboration between Makka Kleist (Inuk, Tuukkaq Theatre) and Muriel Miguel (Kuna/Rappahannock, Spiderwoman Theater).
Convened by Karmenlara Ely, made possible through the artistic research project Blind Spot: Staring down the void, funded by Norwegian Program for Artistic Research, with project leader Karen Kipphoff and producer Patricia Canellis.
