Expanding the Canon, Creating Alternative Knowledge, Marketing the Field?: Performance Practices in Theatre Studies
2016 (English)In: Nordic Theatre Studies, ISSN 0904-6380, Vol. 28, no 1, 4-14 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Departing from examples of German theatre study programs (University of Giessen, University of Hildesheim, University of Bochum), which include performance practice, my contribution discusses specific roles and functions of practical experience in the academic context. I will present and discuss three discursive fields in relation to performance practice as part of academic education: 1) Performance practice as a way of taking a political stance with the aim of changing academic education and to promote alternative forms of theatre. 2) Performance practice as a marketable good within humanities to promote study programs. 3) Performance practice as a means of acquiring alternative knowledge for theatre education and research.
