Performance vroeger én nu

Wil je meer weten over performance art vóór je het festival Performatik induikt, volg dan onze nieuwe vierdelige cursus What is Performance Art. Over het (on)nut van de containerterm ‘performance’. Over performance vroeger én nu, in de beeldende én de podiumkunsten. In elke les belichten we performance vanuit een andere invalshoek, waarna je een performance ziet (in een theatrale of een museale context) die raakvlakken heeft met de thematiek. Katleen Van Langendonck, programmator van het Kaaitheater en curator van Performatik, en telkens een andere specialist gidsen je door het performance-art-landschap aan de hand van tekst en uitleg en veel beeldmateriaal.
