LA TRANSMISSION DE L’ART THEATRAL : SAVOIR OU SAVOIR FAIRE ?

LA TRANSMISSION DE L’ART THEATRAL : SAVOIR OU SAVOIR FAIRE ?

The Transmission of Theatrical Art: knowledge or savoir-faire?

Colloquium organized by the University of Evry’s SLAM Laboratory

Thursday, March 19th from 9:30a.m to 7p.m, at the Théâtre de l’Aquarium

Teaching in the Performing Arts Department at University, creating workshops with amateurs, training young actors to theater art in Schools, all of this confronts us with the question of transmission between theory and practice. This colloquium will raise the question of art teaching methods, and especially for theater which is our own domain. Teaching methods bring into play differences between transmission and teaching, talent and technique, knowledge and savoir-faire. Its position between theory and practice makes us wonder about the importance of the university in Performing Arts teaching, alongside with Ecoles Nationales de Théâtre and Conservatories. Incidentally, the Ministry encourages us to merge research and higher education with the Ecoles Nationales d’Art, thinking about a possible Master degree in Creation.
