Curating Performance and Performativity as Curatorial Method
Lecturer: Sarah Spies, PhD

www.curating.org/curating-performance-as-curatorial-method/


Course dates: 4 December + 11 December 2021, 2–6pm (CET)
Enrol until 26 November 2021

Departing form the rich arc of curatorial frameworks that have mined contemporary performance and choreographic practice since the early 21st century – alongside seminal examples from the 1950s onwards – under the semblance of the 'new performance turn', this online course will focus on the expansive potential of performance as a mode of production and performativity as a method of curatorial exchange. Course content will highlight critical questions around the potential for performative curatorial activities to both negotiate and critique the systems that capture intimacy, collectivity, transmission, embodiment, mediation, and spectatorship. The course will provide a range of pertinent examples (both practical and conceptual) to support more refined subject knowledge, and assignments are designed to support the emergence of individual insights and future projects.

Sarah Spies is a choreographer, performance curator, and senior lecturer in contemporary dance and performance art. She is part of Manchester-based artists-led curatorial collective Accumulations and has worked with ICI as well as the international exchange programme MAHALA/Temporary Occupations and AFiRIperFOMA Biennial.
