Course Description:
Five days of experimental doing, making and thinking together.
Running from Wednesday 14th to Friday 16th November, the Performing Arts Department at IUA will be hosting a selection of artists from across Europe and North America that are all presenting work within the frame of Reykjavík’s Every Body’s Spectacular Performing Arts Festival during that week. The symposium will run from 9 am to 4 pm each day, providing participants with talks, short workshops and experimental performances, each designed to create spaces between participants and the artists to reflect upon and think together through the artist’s practice.

In the evenings and over the weekend there will be opportunities to see work at the festival, but attending the festival programme is not an official part of the curriculum.
