 :: Deus in Machina : Machines, Theatre and Religion in Early Modern Europe


Organized in collaboration with the project "La société du spectacle : La fête baroque entre Italie et anciens Pays-Bas (1585-1685)"



This seminar session consists of a double workshop, in two days, with each day covering a distinct research question. The talks of the first day will consist of historical studies of the technical artifacts involved in religious theatres and feasts. The second day will consist of a reflection on the possibility, challenges and problems of reconstructing the technical aspects of such a spectacle, and what can be learned from such reconstructions. On the second day, there will also be a few brief student presentations on the architectural, artistic and theatrical stakes involved in reconstructing baroque spectacles. The workshop is situated in a series of events, organized by the project "La société du spectacle : La fête baroque entre Italie et anciens Pays-Bas (1585-1685)", which also sponsors the financing of this double workshop.
