Location: Red Room

Duration: 10.00–13.00

Welcome to the 50 % seminar of doctoral student Steinunn Knúts-Önnudóttir at Malmö Theatre Academy. Opponent is Sodja Zupanc Lotker, Theatre Faculty, The Academy of Performing Arts, Prague.

The project strives to develop sustainable methods of creating transformative encounters with an audience through participatory and site-specific performance, with a particular focus on how minimal and sustainable the framework for an encounter can be. The leading research question is: How to construct a transformative artistic encounter through the most minimal means? The project is concerned with the political actions that are embodied in the everyday personal choices in homes and communities and takes place on site in collaboration with local agents and explores how ‘quality of life’ manifests in daily routines. The research is a part of the Agenda 2030 Graduate School an interdisciplinary research platform for sustainable development within Lund University.
