Conducting research is quite a lonesome activity. But it does not need to be. Peers can help you to see clearer what you are looking for. On May 21 2019 THEA Joint Research Group, an informal research platform on the theatricality and the real reuniting both academic and artistic researchers affiliated to Brussels-based universities and art schools organizes a day of reflexion, discussion and exchange. Along the lines of the philosophy of Entre-Aide (a term coined by the anarchist Kropotkin as early as 1902 as an antidote to the devastating competition of social darwinism) we will discuss your research and that of your fellow travelers.

Several THEA members have invited artists and/or academics to discuss their work with the group in different set-ups. Frans-Willem Korsten, professor of Literature & Culture at Leiden University and mentor at Piet Zwart Academy, will be our fellow traveller for the day and will provide you with feedback on your work.
