Performing Space is a project that aims to highlight the importance of the corporeality and physicality of space and the interaction of our bodies and their actions with it as the only possibility for human life and development.

Since 2022, Performing Space has been organising an annual international conference and workshop to coherently present and promote numerous studies and works on performance and space from different disciplines, while experimenting with performance in significant spaces in the history of the development of the built environment.

On 3, 4, 5 and 6 July 2024, the third edition of Performing Space, Conference and Workshops will take place once again in Nafplio, Greece, hosted by the University of the Peloponnese. We invite researchers, students, artists and professionals to present their work at this exceptional event and to participate in the workshops and performative events that will take place on the same days as the conference.
