Communi(cati)on of Crisis

An international symposium on performing arts

The Institute for Live Arts Research organized a 4-days international symposium on the “Communi(cati)on of Crisis”, during which panel discussions, lectures, installations, performances and workshops around the notions of community, communication and crisis took place, which activated a ‘different’ network of spaces across the city of Nafpaktos (e.g. the old Mosque, the deserted Xenia Hotel, the old beach and so on). The Symposium was under the auspices of the Municipality of Nafpaktos and the Athens University. Over 60 artists and theorists from Greece, UK, Spain, Germany, Italy, Mexico and Canada participated in the symposium (among them, Erika Fischer-Lichte, James Harding, Alan Read and Joe Kelleher).
