Event Description

The dialogue and interaction between cognitive neuroscience and the performing arts has been active for years and it provided the space for numerous conferences and seminars worldwide. Even so, seldom has interdisciplinary research really grappled with performance practice, that is the performer’s learning and creative processes. The aim of this first international workshop “The Performer’s Cognition” is precisely that of creating a space in which research in cognitive neuroscience may directly engage performance practices (acting, dance, music, acrobatics…). 

To this end, the Fabrique Autonome des Acteurs (FAA), in collaboration with the Sorbonne University Paris 1-CNRS, the University Paul Valéry of Montpellier and the independent performance group CoCoDanse, are inviting researchers, artists, performers and theoreticians to participate in a practical and theoretical workshop to be held between 26 and 29 August, at the picturesque locality of Bataville, the former industrial complex, now converted in a space for artistic creativity at the very heart of the forest in the Pays de Étangs (France). 

The workshop interests scholars, scientists and artists. The aim is to bring together a small community of individuals involved in a real interdisciplinary debate concerning the dialogue between performance practices and cognitive neuroscience.

The workshop’s objective is to explore the relationship between performance practices and neuroscientific research. The primary questions are: can the neuroscience contribute to performance practices? If yes, how? Could the systems of knowledge developed by the performer contribute to neurocognitive disciplines? In order to address these questions the theoretical sessions will focus on three pivotal notions for the debate between the performing arts and cognitive neuroscience: perception, awareness, and memory. 


PARTICIPATION IS FREE OF CHARGE

Candidates must send their application to the the address fabriqueautonomelabo@yahoo.fr by 30 June 2015.
