Performance in Philosophy/Philosophy in Performance: How Performative Practices Can Enhance and Challenge the Teaching of Theory
AbstractWhat can performance do to enhance the teaching of theory? To what extent is philosophy a performance in itself, and how can certain performative strategies help make this tangible? Can the experience of fusing performance and philosophy help identify wider pedagogical issues within and beyond the boundaries of academia? What happens when the language of science (Wissenschaft) is confronted with the performative arts? What artistic methods can be applied so that people who are used to thinking about certain topics are drawn out of their comfort zone and brought into contact with unfamiliar topics that might, in turn, broaden the horizon and impact of their own theoretical reflection?
