2nd International Symposium: Performance Philosophy School of Athens

The 2nd International Symposium: Performance Philosophy School of Athens is organised by Performance Philosophy Network in collaboration with National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens (EMST). The symposium will include lecture presentations, performance lectures, workshops, video projections and live performances. Presenters from different fields including art theory, dance, performance art, architecture, sculpture and poetry, will come together to present their works and research on the subject of ‘Performance Dance’. This is an invitation to engage with performances of all kinds that stand in-between dance and performance art or more broadly the visual arts. Some of the questions that will be addressed are the following:

In what ways do dance movement and the visual arts intertwine?
How do dance images make us think?
How does the relationship between dance movement, visual arts and philosophy benefit or influence these fields?
What might performance dance offer the emerging field of performance philosophy and vice versa?

Presentations by: Nina Alexopoulou, Ioanna Angelopoulou, Athanasia Antonaki, Anastasia Brouzioti, Carmen Csilla Medina, Thomas Diafas, Stella Dimitrakopoulou, Nika Furlani, Kai Roland Green, Orianna Haddad, Anna Kalyvi, Sophia Kondylia, Elena Koukoli, Spyros Kouvaras, Kórinna Latèlis, Paris Legakis, Jan-Tage Kühlung, Stefania Mylona, Νatasha Papadopoulou, André Rosa, Georgia Sagri, Ben Skinner, Eva Tsagaraki, Fryni Vrettou.
