As we gain solid footing within the landscape of the 21st-century time-based art, it is evident that traditional definitions of genres and disciplines are being transcended in favor of multiple, fluid, hybrid art forms. Along with the resurgence of site-specific, devised, immersive and virtual-reality projects, the role of the performer is rapidly evolving, away from being simply an interpreter of scripts / scores to becoming a co-creator of work – one whose contributions are integral to the vision and identity of the new creations.

CCA’s Contemporary Performance Practices (CPP) program aims to acknowledge and expand the performing arts canon, tracking current trends and discovering new ones, for the benefit of contemporary performers and performance-makers. We will be offering intensive education, taught by prominent international practitioners and educators, focusing on developing strategies for jump-starting new work from scratch by layering compelling visuals, vivid relationships, coherent text, and propulsive narrative. 

This Summer’s edition of CPP is a two-week summer intensive training geared towards a broad range of performing arts students and practitioners, from 1 - 13 July 2019. On behalf of CCA, it is my privilege to invite senior members of two of the world’s leading performing arts companies: SITI Company, co-founded by Anne Bogart (New York, USA) and Jan Fabre’s TROUBLEYN (Antwerp, Belgium) as our faculty. Taking place in the historic Filodrammatica venue in the center of the picturesque, sun-drenched coastal city of Rijeka, Croatia, each teaching artist will spend one entire week focusing on intensive training and knowledge-sharing of their companies’ respective methodologies. While Bogart’s and Fabre’s philosophies approach performance-based work from different angles, both companies are deeply committed to developing truthful, compelling, rigorous visions for the stage, honoring the performer’s intuition and intelligence to advance their development as co-creators rather than merely interpreters of work. I chose these two companies for our program’s inaugural edition, as I find their visions to complement each other in a way that will afford participating artists a well-rounded preparation, inspiring them to generate their own unique creations in the future. We look forward to welcoming you in Croatia this summer!
