19.01.2023 18:30 - 20:00

A hybrid u:japan lecture by Ivan Rumánek (Masaryk University).

| Abstract |

The theoretical introduction, the drama, including its farce companion kyōgen, is analysed from the broader anthropoligical perspective. Its various aspects are characterised according to biological, social, cultural and linguistic anthropology.
   The second part focuses on embodiment and performativity as observed in amateur training and in the practice of using the mask.
