Inhoud van de cursus (alleen in het Engels beschikbaar)

This course focuses on the performative character of rituals and the ritual dimension of performances. A performance is something done, something expressed; it means something, and it effects something. Both ritual and artistic performances use the body, the senses; they use symbols and imaginations to question, create and re-create culture. In our exploration of ritual, performance and the body we give stage to several performances: performances by Marina Abramovic, music by Joep Franssens etc.
