Thinking Through Circus - Bauke Lievens

Bauke Lievens, circus dramaturge and theatre scholar, talks in her lecture "Thinking Through Circus" about the artistic research projects she initiated at the KASK School of Arts in Ghent. How do we think through circus? What conventions and (binary) norms structure circus and how can we think differently and work differently in circus? The answer to these questions is based on an understanding of thinking as a radically relational process: we never think alone, but always in relation to other people, bodies and environments. Circus can thus be focused as an embodied and situated practice of thinking, and new approaches emerge, following neo-materialist currents, to investigate and reweave binary divisions between theory and practice. Excerpts from the book published by the Circus Dialogues team provide insights into these movements of thought.
