FUTURE STAGES/STAGE FUTURES
How can existing stages and traditional representational patterns still be able to mediate an access to the future? How much anticipation such as the forecast of the ecological catastrophe or the countdown to the ‘Sixth Extinction’ is putting a demand on those known stages to mutate in order to sustain themselves as experiential platforms for an access to this very futurity? How this revised approach of time, when future might turn itself into a transformative power for the staging for its own access, affect the re-routing of our performing art practices and the re-visions of our discourses? What collapses, what expands, what emerges?
The two-hour presentations & discussion session is proposed as a critical amplification of Vincent Roumagnac's artistic research project 'Backdrop' shown in the exhibition You gotta say yes to another access. It is generated from the interest to diffract the research focus on expanded theater and time ecology by discussing assumptions, perspectives and prototypes on the theme of 'Future Stages / Stage Futures', under the umbrella-topic of the Research Pavilion 'The Utopia of Access' and on the intersection of artistic research, performing arts, philosophy and architecture. The session will consist of two presentations and one collective exercise followed by an open discussion. With Vincent Roumagnac & Emmanuelle Chiappone-Piriou and Esa Kirkkopelto.
