PIÈCES MOBILES est un colloque de deux jours rassemblant chercheur·e·s, artistes et interprètes qui travaillent avec des marionnettes ou des objets et des corps vivants en mouvement, et qui explorent les résonances et relations souvent mystérieuses entre les deux. Ce symposium proposera, lors d’une série de tables rondes et de conversations, une variété de points de vue ancrés dans différentes disciplines sur le rapport de l’interprète avec les marionnettes et autres éléments inanimés qui partagent avec elle/lui une vie fictive. Cette coprésence crée en effet une double relation au corps de l’interprète, relation faite de dépendance et de contrainte. PIÈCES MOBILES offrira une série de perspectives sur la manière dont les relations du corps et de son partenaire-objet peuvent être notées, imaginées et articulées par le biais d’un vocabulaire partagé.

L’évènement PIÈCES MOBILES est produit par CAFÉ CONCRET et financé par le CRSH et la Faculté des beaux-arts de l’Université Concordia, avec le soutien du Département de théâtre de Concordia. Le symposium est organisé par Mark Sussman, Jesse Orr et Erin Hill avec le soutien de Dinaïg Stall, Clea Minaker et Allison Peacock.

MOVING PARTS is a two-day symposium gathering scholars, artists, investigators, and performers working with puppets, performing objects, live bodies in movement, and the sympathetic and often mysterious relations between the two. A series of panel discussions and conversations will bring multiple disciplinary perspectives to puppets and other inanimate elements that both depend on and make demands on performers’ bodies, as they share fictional life with the performer on stage. MOVING PARTS will offer a series of perspectives on how the articulations of the body and its object-partner can be notated, imagined, and shared across discourses.

MOVING PARTS is produced by CAFÉ CONCRET and funded by SSHRC and the Concordia University Faculty of Fine Arts, with the support of the Concordia Department of Theatre. The symposium is organized by Mark Sussman, Jesse Orr, and Erin Hill with support from Dinaïg Stall, Clea Minaker, and Allison Peacock.
