Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide the tools and methods of observation of cultural and artistic performances, especially the theatrical ones. Starting from the analysis of the forms and language of the collective contemporary imagery – media, artistic, performance products – and the communication theory is possible to treat the artistic performance as a particular place of social observation. The focus on the forms and languages of contemporary theatre and research, based on the dynamics of expressive experimentation involving the media and their logic (mediatization), allows us to understand the evolutionary dynamics of the live communication, then the fundamental relationship with the public, and its drifts that go beyond the traditional here and now. It is therefore in co-evolutionary relationship with the media that the languages of the scene - bodies, drama, writing, matter, time and space - always experience new possibilities and produce new forms, both at the level of aesthetic and imaginary common both in terms of reflective function that always covers the cultural performance. Through the lens of observation of the different types of performance - thanks to the use of video material, visual aids, success stories and testimonials - students can better understand the relationship between the configuration of the company, communication and media industry cultural as well as the scenery and complex hybrid of the collective contemporary imagery.

Program

1. The Performance Theory: anthropological basis, basic mechanisms, frames.

2. Development of social and communicative cultural performance: the ritual forms, the theater (from the greek theater and the bourgeois theater) to the liminoid forms form the avant-garde to nowday performances.

3. Effectiveness, entertainment, hybrid performance.

4. The artistic performance: the social system of art and its functions.

5. The relationship between the social system of art and media system: Research and contamination in hybrid performance.

6. The interactive paradigm of theatrical communication.

7. The contemporary performance and its languages (bodies, drama, writing, matter, time and space) in the processing strategies of media languages: a) enhancement of drama specificity b) assimilation of the media languages c) transfer to the technological supports.

a) The relationship between art and life in the Avant-garde theatre:

b) The "image-theatre", technological and audio-visual experimentation;

c) Radio play, theater, television and video theater, online performance and widespread creativity.
