scripted performances

“it becomes ever more important to consider the practices through which public space continues to be imagined and used in other ways, and to be worked with, struggled over or ‘de´tourned’” (Pinder, 400)

Discuss in groups

Describe the dynamics of the performances:

  • the relations between performers, city and technology
  • (how) can we understand them as something that is ‘scripted’ or that ‘scripts’?
  • How can we understand them in light of what we’ve read so far? (i.e. contextualize this performance to the semester plan)
