Histories of Experimentalism
Length 1h30

With the support of: Centro de Estudos de Teatro and Instituto Cervantes. CET is financed by national funds through FCT – Foundation for Science and Technology.

Since 2019, the Histories of Experimentalism series has revealed unique studies about key-moments of experimentalism in the performing arts between the 1960’s and today. Structured transnationally, the series encompasses various contexts, seeking to question dramaturgic and aesthetic contaminations. In April, we will look into case studies of archives and what can be construed from their content as “common”, as a form of collective belonging to the past (which is always multiple and contested). This is followed by a conference that will analyse institutions, for it is through these that a number of concrete political, aesthetic and existential practices are transmitted.

Annalisa Sacchi is Associate Professor at IUAV University of Venice where, from 2017, she also serves as the Chair of the MA in Theatre and Performing Arts. She is the Principal investigator of the ERC Starting Grant funded project “INCOMMON. In praise of community. Shared creativity in arts and politics in Italy (1959-1979)”. She has collaborated for many years with Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio. 

Programme alteration:

Contrary to what was announced, Marco Baravalle will not be a lead speaker at this conference.

INCOMMON – performing arts in Italy 1959 to 1979 is perhaps the first study that systematically analyses the field of performing arts as a result of common practices both theorized and experienced throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s. The project is particularly dedicated to the study of the history of the “Italian laboratory” as a place where the artistic counterculture expressed by the performing arts developed itself in an environment characterized by a deep relationship between philosophy, politics and revolutionary practices.
