Psyche and Eros
study and discussion theme
A quote from Enrique Pardo : "The main authority (author and dramaturg) I seek in my work is Psyche, especially when Eros is around - that is, when sexuality is given a voice."
The May agenda will include reflecting on and experimenting with the interplay between Psyche's logos and Eros' arrows, between psychological reflection and erotic impulse.
It will also be the main preparation time for the July 2007 Summer Unversity, where we will explore the femenine figurations of the voice - sirens and sibyls - and the role of sexuality in performance creation and pedagogy.
The 2007 symposium will be trilingual
Spanish / English / French
