SAM Seminar 2013
'Material, Space, Performance'

Critical space-making strategies for performative environments are often aligned with the manipulation, over- and misuse of specific materials and physical elements – these strategies strongly contribute to a relentless production of performative space as an arena for action and interaction between participant and environment.

Drawing from case studies within and beyond the black box of the of the theatre and from the perspectives of scenography and stage direction, I will demonstrate how through a departure or ‘transgression’ from conventionalized practices of the performance of materials, and the embracing of what Chantal Mouffe has instead called the ‘agonistic’ model of public space, spatial politics may be both embodied and exposed.

Thea Brejzek is a Professor in the Interior and Spatial Design Program at the University of Technology, Sydney, and teaches at the Institute for Theatre, Film and Media Studies at the University of Vienna. She was the Founding Curator for Theory at the 2011 Prague Quadrennial for Performance Design and Space, Prague. In 2013, she is a Visiting Professor at UCL London, Bartlett School of Architecture.
