Performance Analysis: A Bridge Between Theory and Interpretation

Our purpose is to explore what the concept of performance means today – performance in theory and in praxis. This discussion will allow us, on the one hand, to evaluate the pertinence of this notion in the traditional hermeneutical performative field and on the other hand to reflect on the essence and the limits of this field in the musical landscape of the XXI century. Together with these questions there will be 2 concerts inspired by these present perspectives of performing.

The Conference will take place at Casa da Música in Porto and it is organized by CESEM /IPP between 4-6 October
