- Mini symposium: Freedom in performance? 16 November 2015 19:00-21:00 Parnassos, Kruisstraat 201, Utrecht On the relations between cognition, intuition and free will in creative processes
Together with our new partner the National Centre Performing Arts, we co-joint in this new mini symposium on the relations between cognition, intuition and free will in performance. We will welcome keynote speakers professor dr. Marc Slors and Joao da Silva PhD.
This mini symposium questions the relations between cognition, intuition and free will. How do these co-operate and effect the performing artist in creative processes? Does free will exist in the choice making within creative processes? What does this imply for the relations between artistic improvisation and free will? What role do spontaneity, knowing and not-knowing play in improvisation? The bridges between the philosophy of mind, neuroscience and artistic practices can offer performing artists, art teachers and (para) medicals in the performing arts a wider and deeper understanding of the creative process.
Note: key notes will be in English and Dutch.
The entrance fee is 20 euros. Students (with student card) pay only 5 euros. Registration is required by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive a confirmation with information on payment.
