EASTAP23 – Aarhus Conference Call for Papers
The 6th Conference of the European Association for the Study of Theatre and Performance will be hosted by Aarhus University’s Department of Dramaturgy and the ILT Festival of International Living Theatre Aarhus from 14 to 18 June 2023, in partnership with the IETM Plenary Meeting “Living at the Edge” (Aarhus 12 to 15 June 2023).
We invite submissions of academic and artistic papers, presentations and communications that address our conference topic DIMENSIONS OF DRAMATURGY.
EASTAP was founded to bring together artists and academics and to serve as a platform of dialogue between academic research and creative practice, fostering joint debates on theatre, dance, performance and other live arts. Each year, the EASTAP conference is co-organised by a University department and a theatre or festival. EASTAP appoints an associate artist each year, and an international associate scholar from beyond Europe. The inaugural conference took place in 2018 at the Theatre de la Cité at Paris with associate artist Milo Rau, in 2019 EASTAP2 was hosted at the Teatro Nacional D.Maria II at Lisbon with associate artist Shermin Langhoff, the 2020 conference was planned in connection with the VIE Festival in Northern Italy with associate artists FC Bergman but had to be cancelled because of the Covid outbreak (videos and a book publication emerged from the plans), in 2021 EASTAP 4 was hosted online by Lithuanian National Drama Theatre and Vilnius University with associate artist Phia Ménard, and the 2022 conference took place at the Piccolo Teatro Milano with associate artist Constanza Macras.
