Drama, Theatre and Performance Research Seminars, Online: Zoom
17:30 - 19:00
Presented by Gretchen Schiller
Dancer, Choreographer and Videographer Gretchen Schiller's work is focused on movement, extending the remit of the choreographic by reframing kinaesthetic qualities of place as action and creating movement-based installations choreographed specifically to elicit the general public's kinaesthetic awareness. Schiller will discuss her own work alongside the challenges and opportunities of directing the Performance lab and the Structure Féderative de la Recherche Création at the Maison de la Création et de l’innovation, Université Grenoble Alpes. Roehampton's Prof Leslie Hill (DTP) will join Schiller in a dialogue about interdisciplinarity collaboration in the arts and artistic research at time when Roehampton's departments of Dance, Drama Theatre & Performance and Media, Culture and Language have just been amalgamated into a new School of Arts.
Gretchen Schiller is Director la Maison de la Création et de l’innovation, Université Grenoble Aples, FR and co directs the national Rescam Réseau interuniversitaire d'écoles doctorales Création, Arts et Médias (CAM) with Christophe Genin. Schiller’s book Choreographic Dwellings: Practising Place, co-edited with Sarah Rubidge, is published by Palgrave Macmillan.
