‘What is under construction is already a ruin’

Monday 3rd June, 6.30pm-9.00pm

Studio 3, Toynbee Studios, 28 Commercial Street, London, E1 6AB

Free event. Food and refreshments will be served.

 

How does performance challenge the writing of history? What historiographic concepts, methods and techniques are necessary to address the forces of performance? How might one write of the historical construction that often houses performances: the theatre? Can an abandoned theatre re-fashion the potentials of performance?

 

This event marks the occasion of Prof. Eleonora Fabião’s research visit to the University of Roehampton as part of an exchange with Prof. Adrian Heathfield around contemporary performance. Fabião’s lecture will introduce the work of Brazilian creator Arthur Bispo do Rosario, whose stated aim, during a lifelong internment at the Juliano Moreira Asylum (Rio de Janeiro), was to construct an Archive of the Human World to be presented to God in the day of the Final Judgement. Based on a recent trip around the Amazon basin as part of the research exchange, Augusto Corrieri’s travelogue-presentation focuses on the history and decadent splendour of Teatro Amazonas, the ‘opera house in the jungle’ featured in Werner Herzog’s Fitzcarraldo.

 

This event is supported by Santander Bank.
