Abstract of the webinar
Ritual ceremonies – such as weddings, funerals, or carnivals – have a significant role in human life. Rituals have been performed since ancient times, and are also considered as the foundation of theatre. The place of a ritual is crucial, as community members often choose locations that hold personal or communal significance, such as street corners, parks, or church grounds. At the webinar, Zahra will present her DLA research which focuses on the relationship between humans and their environment in the context of ritual ceremonies through the examples of Persian passion play, and the intimate old factory space of Artus studio and also the calvary building at the Hungarian University of Fine Art where Zahra´s masterpiece performance took place.
