Madison Performance Philosophy Collective invites individuals and groups to propose lecture performances, experimental talks, live art, interactive installations, roundtable discussions, collaborative praxis-based workshops, site-specific work, durational work, relational aesthetics, and digital media at the intersection of performance and philosophy or theory and practice more generally. We welcome a diversity of approaches, styles, and methods. Some sessions may be more heavily weighted toward either scholarship or live art, while others may attempt to strike a balance or produce a hybridization between performance and philosophy. Regardless of a project’s format, an emphasis on participation – such as audience interaction or response structures – is encouraged.
Submit your work in one of the following formats (indicate if your work is multi-format):
- Live Talk / Paper Presentation
- Live Performance
- Participatory Workshop (the majority of the session involving the physical engagement of participants in activities)
- Durational Installation (ongoing throughout the day)
- Durational Performance (ongoing throughout the day)
- Video screening
Beyond the basic set-up of the space (built-in digital projector with sound system, touch-screen TV), any other technical needs will be the responsibility of the presenter. Early set-up can be negotiated.
Proposals Due Monday, February 2nd
Include your name, brief bio, title of your submission, format, time and space requests, technical requirements, and a 300 to 500-word description of your proposed project.
