Event Description
Researchers and practitioners from all disciplines are invited to work with Portuguese choreographer João Fiadeiro to explore the intersections between art and science in a focused two-day workshop. Fiadeiro is in residence at KU from February 15-28 as the first creative specialist hosted by the Spencer Museum's Arts Research Collaboration initiative (ARC). His method of “real-time composition” focuses on process rather than product, transforming movement into a theoretical-practical tool and platform to understand and rethink decision, representation, and cooperation, both in art and in life. Open to all faculty, staff, and students, this workshop will be of special interest to those in the fields of dance and theater, as well as complex systems sciences, cognitive science and linguistics, clinical psychology, anthropology, philosophy, neuroscience, and management. The workshop takes place from 4-8 PM on Friday and 9 AM-5 PM on Saturday. To register or learn more, please see http://www.spencerart.ku.edu/research/arc/. Fiadeiro’s residency is supported by a grant from the KU Research Investment Council.
