  • Entrepreneurship as mindset – how do I see myself as an entrepreneur and an artistic entrepreneur?
  • Entrepreneurship as value creating work – how do I locate values in my projects
  • Entrepreneurship as a tool – what concrete tools of professionalization should I know?

Performance and Power at Theatre Academy, Helsinki University of the Arts

Period: 23/10/17 – 10/11/17
Requirements: MA (all types) or advanced BA
Application deadline: 23.9.2017

Course description:
The workshop examines the practice of preparing and practicing the performance from the point of view of the use of power. The goal is to stop and think about the forces and practices that influence our own artistic work, which, on the other hand, narrows our understanding of ourselves by limiting our artistic liberties and, on the other hand, transforms our relationship with others. From this practical and personal starting point, we are moving towards perceiving social and political connections and experimenting with new practices. The workshop builds on a living dialogue of theory and practice. The workshop also involves viewing at least one presentation outside the course schedule.
