MASTER PACS - PERFORMING ARTS AND COMMUNITY SPACES





 
The Master is resuming in September 2020 following its suspenion during the Covid-19 lockdown.
 

 

The aim of the Master PACS - Performing Arts and Community Spaces, the first of its kind in Italy, is to offer a course using exploration of the performative languages of theatre, music, dance and the visual arts to guide participants towards new forms of artistic experimentation and interdisciplinary research, as well as towards the community-based activation of architectural and urban space, with a particular focus on the former Slaughterhouse in Rome's Testaccio neighbourhood, where both the Department of Architecture and the “Pelanda”, one of Rome's most important performing spaces, are situated.  
 
 

Who is it for?


The Master PACS is intended for artists and experimenters in the various disciplines of the performing arts, as well as for architects, landscape artists and urban planners; for curators and theorists of contemporary art, and for philosophers, anthropologists and researchers in the field of urban studies. One of the Master's aims is to introduce the performing arts into the cultural horizon of architects. Performance art can become a useful tool for architecture; the body and its movement can be used in architectural and urban design as a means of producing community spaces.
Workshops will involve Italian and international artists and theorists; theoretical seminars will contribute to exploring the educational path in greater depth with a view to promoting mutual exchange and the construction of a creative and critical vision.
