PSi Daegu 2018
Performance as Network : Arts, City, Culture
3-6 July 2018
The PSi Future Advisory Board welcomes you to our second summer school edition, coinciding with PSi #24 in Daegu.
The event brings together scholars, artists, and activists over the course of several days in an intensive series of activities directed at thinking through, working with, and creating anew pressing issues and rising trends in performance studies.
We propose the interval '0.5' in the title as a gesture to the temporality in which the summer school happens, in between conferences, but also, and perhaps more centrally, to the fertility of the unfinished, the incomplete, and the "not-yet here" (Muñoz 2009).
We take the themes of OverFlow (PSi #23 Hamburg) and Performance as Network: Arts, City, Culture (PSi #24 Daegu) as the frame for our discussions.

Founder and Director Na-kyung Lee will give us an introduction to Theatre Troupe TRAIN. The talk will offer a glimpse into Theatre Troupe TRAIN's creative process and how the troupe communicates with the audience through their works. The talk will focus on ideas of play, theatricality, and festive performance through a close examination of the troupe's recent works.
Theatre Troupe TRAIN
Founded in 2010, Theatre Troupe TRAIN is currently one of Daegu's representative local theatre companies. Well-known for their non-verbal performances, the troupe creates unique and experimental works about underrepresented groups and everyday life. Through their works, the troupe explores ideas of play, theatricality, and festive performance. The troupe's goal is to actively communicate with the audience and make a better world by making art.
