E-Scapes
Education, Performance Design & Research Conference
Brazil │ 4-18 August 2014

E-Scapes
The exploration of escaping traditional boundaries of Performance and its Design 
It is an inflection created from the words SCAPE and ESCAPE with the intention of bringing not only the sense of location or place (SCAPE) but the action of escaping normal boundaries (ESCAPADE); to look forward, of breaking rules, to rethink, to begin anew. This is to not only suggest moving out from the traditional space of theatre but to explore the designers’ attitude in the contemporary.

 

Full Program
E-Scapes program includes Conference, Workshops, Exhibition, Visits to Theatres and places of interest in São Paulo City. There will also be extended visits to Rio de Janeiro and INHOTIM upon request. Please find the Full program below.
