April 28

Negotiating Quotidian: Performing the Everyday The Doctoral Theatre Students’ Association 2021 Conference

Doctoral Theatre Students Association with funding from the CUNY Doctoral Student Council, presents

Negotiating Quotidian:
Performing the Everyday
Graduate Student Virtual Conference (Watch here on Howlround)

April 28 Wednesday and 29 Thursday, 2021
Ph.D. Program in Theatre and Performance
The Graduate Center, City University of New York (CUNY)

This conference aims to investigate how performing the everyday has recently changed our
perception of and experience in theatre and performance, especially when the everyday is
intertwined with technology and mediated experience. Moreover, it confronts the complexity of
defining a (universal/generic) concept of the everyday, given that there are cultural, class, and
racial differences between individuals, whose everyday do we mean when we use the term?
What role do experts of the everyday play in performing the everyday? What are the ethics that
intertwine with the aesthetic of this kind of performance? How have those differences shaped our understanding of both local and global phenomena?

SEGAL TALKS: Week 35
LUCIEN ZAYAN & RAJA FEATHER KELLY (NYC)

Thursday, May 6, 2021, 12 noon EDT 

“New Times need new Forms of Theatre.” Bertolt Brecht

Lucien Zayan & Raja Feather Kelly
Join us for a conversation about curating, producing and presenting theatre and performance in the Time of Corona

Lucien Zayan was born in Marseille in 1965 and moved to Paris when he was 19. After different positions in major French cultural institutions such as the Theatre de l’Odeon, Festival d’Art Lyrique d’Aix-en-Provence, Theatre de la Madeleine, Lucien decided to take 3 months break and go to NYC. At the end of his stay, Lucien discovered the 1863 building located at 51 Bergen street and literally falls in love with it. The building itself inspired him to do the project of a multidisciplinary arts space presenting visual art, dance, music, theater, movies and also be the home of 27 resident artists. The Invisible Dog Art Center opened in October 2009. In November 2018, Lucien Zayan discovers another one of his passions: cooking. He created a new space dedicated to food experiences: la Salle A Manger, a contemporary reimagining of an old fashion dining room where he cooks intimate dinners for his selected guests, artists and supporters of the arts. SAM has become the fundraising force behind The Invisible Dog. Zayan lives and works on Bergen street, Brooklyn.

The 2021 Edwin Booth Award
Diana Taylor
Celebrating a Lifetime of Activism within Academia

Click here to register for the live event

 Since she co-founded the Institute for Women and Social Change (1993), to the Institute for Performance and Politics (1995), to the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics (1998), Diana Taylor has dedicated her career to bringing artists, activists, scholars, and students together to discuss and act on the urgent social issues of our time. Scholarship, she argues in her books, is also a form of activism, an intervention that can channel the expertise and resources of universities to engage other communities of practice. What can we do, she asks, when apparently nothing can be done, and doing nothing is not an option? A lot. 

Diana Taylor is University Professor and Professor of Performance Studies and Spanish at New York University. She is the award-winning author of multiple books, among them: Theatre of Crisis (1991), Disappearing Acts (1997), The Archive and the Repertoire (2003), Performance (2016), and ¡Presente! The Politics of Presence (2020). These last three books were written or translated into Spanish as well as other languages. ¡Presente! will come out early next year with Ediciones Universidad Alberto Hurtado later this year. Taylor was the Founding Director of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics from 1998 to 2000. She is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and several other major awards. In 2017, Taylor was President of the Modern Language Association. In 2018 she was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Science.

The 2021 Booth Award is made possible by gracious support from: CUNY Doctoral Students’ Council Prof. Marvin Carlson, the Sidney E. Cohn Chair in Theatre Prof. Jean Graham-Jones, the Lucille Lortel Chair in Theatre Prof. David Savran, the Vera Mowry Roberts Chair in Theatre

The Edwin Booth Award was established in 1983 by the Doctoral Theatre Students’ Association (DTSA) to honor a person, organization, or company for their outstanding contribution to the New York City/American Theatre and Performance Community. Recipients of the annual Booth Award are nominated and elected exclusively by students in the program. Named after the nineteenth-century tragedian Edwin Booth, renowned for his intellectual curiosity, the award promotes integration of the professional and academic theatre communities. The 2019 Booth Award was given to Ishmael Houston-Jones. Past honorees include: Ellen Stewart (’84), Joseph Papp (’89), Dixon Place (’99), HERE Arts Center (’06), Mabou Mines (’07), Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir (’16), Taylor Mac (’17), Young Jean Lee (’18) and others.

The program embraces the rich cultural resources of New York City, with its professional theatre specialists, institutions, and myriad productions, as well as its library and museum facilities and its archives and private collections. Although the program emphasizes academic studies, attempts are made to form alliances of understanding between scholars and practitioners whenever possible. http://www.gc.cuny.edu/theatre

Ana Ablamonova is the founder and producer of Operomanija, a production house in Lithuania, dedicated to creation and promotion of new music theatre through diverse cross-disciplinary artistic collaborations. Since 2008, she has produced around 50 contemporary operas and various multidisciplinary art projects, including opera Have a Good Day!

Dr. Goraparasit is a female digital theatre, performance and experimental film and music video director, lecturer, methodologist and designer. A member of WIF (Women In film, USA) and Lithuanian interdisciplinary artists’ association (LETMEKOO, LIAA). Her Conceptual esthetical interests lies in the depths of the net, the act of browsing in itself is an infinite cognitive journey of collecting and identifying audio-visual experiences by which one learns about the world and through which they recreate a sense of self and collective identity, almost directly illustrated by the performances/films such as Electric Dreams (Israel), Psycho (Lithuania). La Psycho (Los Angeles), Elf-fles (Rome, Italy) and many others where cognitive, digital sciences & faking becomes a tool for creativity and continues performative acts. Artists orchestrates a visual shows with a collage of re-enactments and fragments repeated/giffed by actors with maximum precision using a bodily “lip-sync” technique which all the actors skillfully acquire; her shows are like a Youtube-browsing experience where you would go from one clip to another; sometimes without going too deep into its content; you would recognize some things while other things would slip into the digital abyss without leaving traces. Dr. Goraparasit’s works tend to combine performance, cinema, theatre, neuroscience and digital culture its expressive aesthetical language is screaming for attention; as our daily lives visually overloaded digital reality.

ABOUT SEGAL TALKS
The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center is proud to announce the new line-up of its new global series, SEGAL TALKS. Since the beginning in March the series featured over 100 talks with 150 artists from 50 countries. New York, US, and international theatre artists, curators, researchers, and academics will talk daily during the week for one hour with Segal Center’s director, Frank Hentschker, about life and art in the Time of Corona and speak about challenges, sorrows, and hopes for the new Weltzustand— the State of the World. After a break in August the series will now also focus on Theatre, Performance and The Political, highlighting the Segal Center’s 2023 New York International Festival of the Arts Project and the Center’s Public Park Project. The Segal Center is the only theatre institution in NYC and the US creating new, original, daily content for the global field of theater and performance. The series was conceived, created and curated by Frank Hentschker in March 2020.
