    Pessi Parviainen When Nothing Is Called Music: Ecological Composition

    There is artistic practice that could be called both music and non-music. Such cases are evidence of an insufficiency in discourse: we cannot properly talk about them because ‘music’ isn’t a suitable word to address them.
    A selection of such cases is presented, from unusual instruments and performance strategies to composed theatre, including examples from Parviainen’s own artistic practice.

    To investigate the roots of the problem, the origin of the word ‘music’ is studied.

    Vincent Roumagnac Reacclimating the Stage (Skenomorphoses)

    An Ecotonal Doctoral Piece in 40 Scènes, 15 Parergonal Writings and 5 Double-Postcards

    From the perspective of mise-en-scène (staging), and correlatively that of the place and the practice of the metteur-en-scène (theatre director), this artistic research project addresses, examines and experiments on the question of the scenic/scenographic representation of a postnatural world, in climate transition, affected by global warming and moved by abstract data-flows, in a tangled web of storms, information, and algorithms.

    Mari Rusi-Pyykönen Hetkestä syntynyttä: suunnanmuutoksia ja uudenlaista otetta osallistavan teatterin käytäntöihin

    Osallistava teatteri alkoi levitä Suomeen 1960–1970-lukujen vaihteessa. Tällöin osallistavia käytäntöjä luonnehti yhteisöllisyys ja yhteiskunnallisesti aktivistinen asennoituminen. Onko tämä historiallinen perspektiivi tullut toimintakentässä läpinäkymättömäksi? Väitöstutkimuksessaan Mari Rusi-Pyykönen pyrkii kirkastamaan osallistavan teatterin käytäntöjen historiallista muotoutumista nykytilanteen vakiintuneiden toimintamuotojen näkökulmasta.
