Perforum Conference 2017 invites:
Practitioners, artists and scholars, whose work falls under the umbrella of embodied practice-as research in academia and in the artistic fields of Performance Art, Theatre and Dance to present their research through 45-minute workshops or 20-minute paper presentations.
We invite proposals for workshops that share research findings with a group of maximum 12 participants and observers, and paper presentations that thrive on performative approaches to sharing research, including short practical demonstrations, use of video documentation etc.
