Performing Space is an international annual event that includes a conference and a workshop, whose purpose is to present and promote, in a coherent way, a number of studies and works on performance and space, and to offer a framework in which to experiment with performance in significant spaces in the history of the development of the built environment.
The University of the Peloponnese, through the Department of Theatre of the University of the Peloponnese (Τμήμα Θεατρικών Σπουδών του Πανεπιστημίου Πελοποννήσου) hosted Performing Space 2022 - Epidaurus, in Nafplio, Greece. The first edition of the event featured contributions from 27 academics, practitioners and students from Greece, Spain, Italy, UK and Germany.
Performing Space 2023 will take place in Nafplio, in July 2023, hosted once again by the University of Peloponnese, with the collaboration of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Università degli Studi di RomaTre and Nottingham Trent University. In this edition, during the workshop, the case study extends to the Argolida, working in ancient sites such as Tíryns, Mycenae, Argos, Epidaurus or Nafplio. The participants of the Conference and the Workshop will have, among other activities, the opportunity to attend the Epidaurus Festival to witness a performance of ancient drama in the famous theatre of Epidaurus.
