Den performativa dårens metod och föreställningen om galenskap: om det okända, det främmande och icke-vetandet som konstnärlig praktik och metod
Stockholm University of the Arts, Department of Performing Arts.

Abstract [en]

This project is researching how a comedy show on insanity could be created and aims to research the subject of madness and the performance of insanity. What is the creative idiot? How can play be an option for understanding the Other? The research is the phenomenology of crazy as the unknown, the stranger and the other. 

This research questions the ethics of the performance as well as its aesthetics. How can crazy perform itself in an international performative arts context? The focus is to understand the Other as the unknown as unavailable to reason and therefore impossible to perform as understandable. The object of research is the conflict between reason and its negation as the unknown stranger. 

The result of this project is an idea on how to create this performance, as a way of practicing madness in a safe space and enjoy insanity as a way of producing the not yet known, as a way of playing life.

Abstract [sv]

Det här examensarbetet önskar resultera i en idé till en humorföreställning. Det undersöker tematiken kring galenskap och på vilket sätt det går att gestalta den. Undersökningens fokus är vansinnets fenomenologi och möjligheten till dess gestaltning inom internationell scenkonst. 

Detta examensarbete undersöker föreställningens förutsättningar både etiskt och estetiskt via teori och praktik. Hur kan galenskapen gestaltas oavsett tid, plats och form? Fokus kommer först och främst att ligga på själva researchfasen i projektet men delar av materialet kan komma att användas i den framtida föreställningen. Resultatet är en idé till en humorföreställning som gestaltar galenskap och dess bakomliggande teorier om humor som en konflikt mellan förnuft och oförnuft.
