Abstract [en]

The dissertation aims at being a documentation, through written descriptions, of some parts of the teaching of voice and speech at the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts. Three different classes or subjects are analyzed; the training of voice and resonance for Peter Teubner, speech, song and text interpretation for Pia Olby and Karin Rudfeldt and a stage production led by director Ellen Lamm. Part of the overall aim is to reflect upon and to describe some key factors of how the documentation is made. For this a theoretical framework built from a reading of some of Jacques Derrida’s philosophical concepts are used. The work at the Academy is related to Derrida’s work in a juxtaposed manner. I use the two different areas; maintains a border between them, transferring descriptions from one area to the other in a repetitive fashion. This repetitive way of working generates the results – the documentation. The cornerstone of the dissertation, its result, as well as its foundation is distance. It is through distance that the documentation works. A close reading, a phenomenological endeavor of giving detailed descriptions, relies on an originary distance.

The thesis examines what the educational situation is based on and how this foundation is involved in shaping the education. More specifically, it challenges the notion that the meeting between student and pedagogue rests on a presence, a meeting here and now, by emphasizing differences and traces in time and space. The pedagogical situation, as well as Derrida’s philosophical project, is described as something based on differences, traces, an ongoing repetition, borders and constant shifts in an interweaving or juxtaposing movement.
