Pre-Conference Events

June 3

Join us on June 3rd, 9pm Asia/Manila time (GTM+8), for our online meeting “we here, between sky and earth” with the Brazilian artist and researcher Eleonora Fabião.
The meeting is linked to the PSi#27: Hunger 2022 Conference a pre-event which will be publicly accessible. It will be livestreamed on the Facebook page of Performance Studies international:
During the encounter, the Brazilian artist Eleonora Fabião will introduce “we here, between sky and earth”, a work commissioned by the 34th São Paulo Biennial (2021) that involved 27 public institutions linked with health, education, culture, and legislation located 5 km around the biennial pavilion. Performance art and performance studies are practiced as modes of proliferation in a necropolitical context. The work is to subvert the logic of violence and affirm difference without separability by articulating aesthetical, social, and spiritual matters.

Eleonora Fabião is a Brazilian action artist and performance theorist. She has been performing, lecturing, teaching and publishing internationally. Things That Must Be Done Series (Performa Biennial, NY 2015) is the title of a work and, also, a way of referring to her artistic practice. Associate Professor at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, School of Communication, she holds a PhD and an MA in Performance Studies (NYU) and an MA in Social History of Culture (PUC-Rio). Fabião is Researcher Level-2 of the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development since 2019 (CNPq).

The meeting will be hosted and moderated by the Laboratory of Acting and Practical Knowledge – LabACT (Institute of Arts, State University of Campinas – Unicamp, Brazil) in partnership with the PSi – Performance Studies international.
