ARTAUD FORUM 1:  
The World from within and without

(in memoriam Kazuo Ohno)


Date: Monday and Tuesday, 4-5 April 2011
Venue: Artaud Performance Centre, Brunel University, West London, UK

Home: http://people.brunel.ac.uk/dap/artaudforum.html 
http://www.brunel.ac.uk/about/acad/sa/artsub/drama/artaudforum

This symposium and performance laboratory initiates a series of annually held 
research events at Brunel University’s Artaud Performance Centre, bringing 
together an invited group of international theatre and dance artists, 
filmmakers, photographers, art theorists and researchers engaged in creative 
practices that reflect on major innovative performance traditions of the past 
century and their impact on current performance knowledge and physical (or 
physical-digital) techniques.  The first instalment of the ARTAUD FORUM is 
dedicated to the memory of Kazuo Ohno and the complex convergences/ differences 
between Japanese and Western performative methods.

The symposium-workshop is composed of dialogue and performance practice, 
intermixed with live dance, film screenings and a photographic exhibition. 

Participant observers are welcome to enrol for a £ 60 conference fee (£ 45 
concession).

The “Workshop Words,” as the late Kazuo Ohno called reflections on his 
practice, will be published by the Centre for Contemporary and Digital 
Performance.

The featured participants will provide important stimulus to the conference 
from various perspectives, informing and challenging our thinking about the 
conference theme.
