Featured: Performance Studies International #17 Conference

Camillo 2.0: Technology, Memory, Experience is an initiative of Theatre Studies at Utrecht University and the theatre festival Festival a/d Werf. This conference takes place from 25 to 29 May 2011 in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

Camillo 2.0: Technology, Memory, Experience combines science, scholarly pursuit and art in an exciting five-day programme of lectures, presentations of current research (both theoretical and practical), performances, debates, workshops, as well as so-called ‘shifts’ (hybrid programme components introduced by participants or initiated by the organisers which pave the way to unconventional types of presentations). The programme combines the most productive elements of international theory and practice to ensure maximum interaction between scholars and artists. In this way, the conference highlights cutting-edge research whilst allowing for structured dialogues in different shapes and forms.

• Presentations by more than 400 international scholars and artists;
• Keynote lectures by Mieke Bal and Jane Taylor
• Camillo Lectures with Peter Matussek, Janez Jansa and William Uricchio;
• Over 50 shifts (demonstrations, installations, (lecture) performances, workshops and discussions) including an exhibition with preserved performance artists, a retirement home for Performance Studies scholars, demonstrations of new digital archiving projects for dance and performance, Soundcan interventions and the multimedia projectSaving the Conference;
• Many performances and installations such as Wailing Wall by Janez Jansa, the performance Actor # 1 by Kris Verdonck, Will You Ever Be Happy Again? by Sanja Mitrovic, This is How You Will Disappear by Gisèle Vienne, I am 1984 by Giuseppe Chico & Barbara Matijevic and the project Tele_Trust by Karen Lancel & Hermen Maat;
