A 2-day experiment proposed by the MA students from the Norwegian Theatre Academy / Østfold University College in Scenography and Performance
During Oslo Internasjonale Teaterfestival, MA students from the Norwegian Theatre Academy invite everyone to participate in an experiment to unfold one of the oldest practices we know: The art of hospitality. By sharing matters and practices at the core of their research processes, the students will explore the following questions: How can we learn to listen to each other? What do we really mean by participation, embodiment and sharing space in art practices today? How do we share knowledge — who has access and who has not? The event will include performance actions, special guests, talks, collective experiments, light refreshments, and open discussions. The students invite you to a welcoming space open to the complexity of diverse dialogues and languages. The common interest is in finding ways of proposing positive counteractions that invite polyphonic listening forms, challenging given power structures in the academia, arts and beyond. You are more than welcome to attend both days, one day or just spend a few hours.
