Sept. 28, 2016 | Proximities/Distances: Contemporary Spanish and Latin American Performance Theories and Practices - Conferences 1&2

PROXIMITIES/DISTANCES was a two-day event, exploring ideas and practices of proximity and distance in contemporary Spanish and Latin American theatre, performance and dance through the talks with creators and performers. Drawing on the current interest in relational strategies and investigating the connections between art and audiences, the aesthetic and the socio-political, it examined a diverse range of dramaturgies that bring these different media into contact.
