Materiality of Performance, 3.-4.5.2018

The keyword of ‚Materiality of Performance’ continues to appear in the international discourse about theatre historiography. It indicates a shift in the focus of research towards the material conditions of cultural performances as well as the materials remains as such. A place like the theatre collection of the University of Cologne (TWS) has a special interest as well as the obligation to deal with and to improve research tools to set materials/objects into the discourse.

The workshop „Materiality of Performance – Performance residues“ took place at the TWS in May. It brought together international scholars to discuss possibilities and approaches with regard to different/various cultural backgrounds and perspectives.
