Open Call for a Guest Professor at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies (Justus-Liebig University, Giessen)

The Institute for Applied Theatre Studies of the Justus-Liebig University of Giessen invites one external artist, practitioner or researcher to join the institute for a visiting period of one or two semesters, between October 2020 and February 2022.

The Institute for Applied Theatre Studies focuses its research and teaching activities on an expandable understanding of theatre as an open space for all the different articulations of theatre, dance and performance. This approach is accompanied by an interdisciplinary methodology that combines theory and practice so that science could attend theatre and theatre could attend science problematizing each other, making visible scientific and artistic sets of problems and answers. The goal is to provide students with a thorough and wide basis for academic and artistic practice; to allow them to search for new forms in performing arts with an awareness and sensibility in both art and academics.

For all information check out our Call attached.

Deadline for application: 31.01.2020
