5th EASTAP Conference
Authorship, Staging and Beyond
Milan, 23-27 May 2022
As a continuation of, and in line with, the themes of the previous editions – Paris (2018), Lisbon (2019), Bologna (2020), Vilnius (2021) –, the 5th international EASTAP (European Association for the Study of Theatre and Performance) Conference will take place within the framework of the International Festival that the Piccolo Teatro di Milano is dedicating to Strehler in May 2022, entitled Presente indicativo: per Giorgio Strehler (paesaggi teatrali). The aim of the Conference is to offer an in-depth and multi-faceted examination of the idea of the Theatrical Mind in relation to the various forms of live performance (for example, from prose to performance, to musical theatre and dance) and in light of the relationship between theory and practice.
The Conference programme includes speeches from keynote speakers; numerous sessions with thematic panels involving experts, artists, researchers and professionals from the world of live performance; round tables; workshops with some of the most important Italian and international theatrical artists; presentations of research projects by young scholars as part of the Emerging Scholars’ Forum.
The Associate Artist of the Conference is the Argentinian choreographer Constanza Macras.
