Models of collaboration: performers and scenographers

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


In this composite panel, we would like to create an international and transcultural forum to reflect on several issues related to the collaboration between performers and scenographers.

This panel will discuss questions arising from the themes proposed by the participants of this panel:
* What legacies of the performer-scenographer relationship have we inherited? What kind of hierarchies and assumptions of primacy and dominance have we inherited?
* How has the agency of the creators who contribute to the theatrical or performative act developed and changed?
* We have seen a significant shift towards more democratic, open and non-hierarchical modes of creative collaboration. How far can we take this idea of non-hierarchical collaboration as a temporal community of practice?
* How have these collaborative practices in the creative arts changed over time?
* How can we navigate and negotiate, nurture and cultivate in collaborative ways without a power struggle between disciplinary positions and creative ideas?

Panel speakers: Jane Collins (UK), dr Sara Franqueira (PT), dr Dorrita Hannah (NZ), dr Susan Marshall (IT/UK), Joselin McKinney (UK), Charlotte Østergaard (DK)
