The Performance Studies Graduate Group is holding a one-day working seminar on practice as research in film, video and visual intermedial arts. The seminar brings together professionals who are also academic researchers, or who work closely with academic researchers. Areas addressed include documentary, experimental video/film production, video essay, acting for film/video, film and video curating, and intermedial practices in performance art and in stage production. The focus is on how practice as research in these visual areas is approached through experimental ways of knowing. The seminar is also concerned with how these practices and approaches are articulated into critique and ongoing discussions about research, as well as how they are mediated into teaching.

Contributors incude: Joe Churchill, Ksenia Federova, Regina Gutierrez, Alvaro Hernandez, Kevin Lee, Jesse Lerner, Alex Lichtenfels, Emelie Mahdavian, Darrin Martin, Fiamma Montezemolo, Heather Nolan, Kriss Ravetto, John Zibell

Day starts at 8.30am, speakers start at 9am, lunch 12.45-1.30, and we end at 5pm.
