‘Per Forma’ is a two–day event exploring the relationship between contemporary performance art, theatre and their audiences.
It takes place on December 8, 2pm at Intercult Studio and December 9, 7pm at Fylkingen, Stockholm.
How do we perceive performance in the age of constantly commodified performativity?
The ephemeral nature of performance and theatre has been facing numerous existential challenges, where the focus lies on simplified, readily accessible pleasures and where institutional structures are being shaped according to political and economic agendas.
Transition and identity is the theme these events center around. Who is an actor, a performer, a spectator in a performance today and what dynamics and possibilities of transformation does the relationship between those offer? Are these firlmy institutionalised, untraversable roles or can it be transitioned and developed in response to current context?
