Sobre a conferência:
In his essay ‘Man and Object in Theatre’ Czech Structuralist Jirí Veltruský points out that the distinctive character of theatre is its ability to transform a lifeless object on stage into a performing subject and to turn a live actor into a thing without will. Taking this dialectic antynomy as a point of departure, this talk will explore the aesthetics and politics of the relationship between alive and lifeless in performance. It will address the relationship between theatre and performance (both as in live art and as interventions within the fabric of everyday life) through examples that in various ways blur the lines between body and object.
