Week 2021


Closing event

Participatory Performance – Revisiting
Fernanda Branco, Ph.D. Candidate Artistic Research. Theatre Department.
A collective stitched soundscape narrative of remembrances. Practicing ways of listening and remembering.

How does remembering help to remember? What does happen while revisiting a moment? How do we remember as a collective body?

Revisiting is a practice initiated during the Master studies in Performance of Fernanda Branco at the Norwegian Theatre Academy.
Reversing and Revisiting are practices that occupies liminal spaces. It can be considered ritualistic approaches to relate to boundaries focussed on initiations and enclosers.

Camille Norment, Prorector of research, KHiO, and Voices from and about this year’s Artistic Research Week in further reflection and discussion.


Work Group

Objective Enactive
This online lecture-demonstration unfolds the term ´Poetic Materiality´ within the context of designing and choreographing with Somatic Costumes. Through critiquing and applying the somatic practice of Skinner Releasing Technique, the poetics of philosopher Gaston Bachelard and the materiality of anthropologist Tim Ingold, this talk begins to map poetic and material agencies between bodies-costumes within the design-performance encounter.

Artist Talk

Objective Enactive

This talk will focus on the first outcome of Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, a tripartite site-specific, where I am pursuing a speculative exploration of the ecology of the city, between the urban and the biological, unfolding its layers and materiality of time. The talk will end in a conversation between fellow researchers and artists in the collaborative project Urban Ecologies, where Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, is generated from.


Polyvocal Tongue
The presentation will focus on relational ethics and polyvocality in performative text. It will also explore the use of plural languages in a play, looking at how a polylingual praxis can open up new aesthetic potential in playwrighting and in artistic research in general.


TRANSPOSITIONS— JAR, Mette Edvardsen and modular diaries

At the start, the idea for an artistic research conversation with Mette Edvardsen did not spring out of the topics shortlisted for the conference—hospitality, vulnerability and care—but a book that she had co-edited, and dropped in my shelf.

Panel Discussion

The Ethics of Vulnerability and Artistic Research

Any ethical framework must take account of the vulnerability of the human condition. This is significant in all creative endeavours – especially in artistic practice and the teaching of it – since the very act of creating something and putting it out into the world is an expression of vulnerability.
