PSi #15 in Zagreb, Croatia

The fifteenth Performance Studies International (PSI) conference, Misperformance: Misfiring, Misfitting, Misreading, will take place in Zagreb, Croatia, June 24 - 28 2009. It is being hosted by the Centre for Drama Arts, which is the main organizer of the conference, and several other research and cultural institutions: Faculty of Philosophy and Academy of Drama Arts (Dramaturgy Department) of the University of Zagreb, Teatar &TD and Student Centre of the University of Zagreb and Institute for Ethnology and Folklore Studies.

The Organizing Committee of PSi # 15 has decided to propose a new conference format this year, combining both the traditional and various non-conventional, open and flexible models of presenting, discussing and performing. While in the morning and the early afternoon conference participants present their papers in panel discussions, in the evening and late night slots they will be invited to participate in a program of practical and artistic ‘shifts’. Shifts are designed to accomplish a higher level of interaction between the participants in the conference, and, more specifically, between artistic and theoretical work.
