Mini Fieldings Forum


Gepubliceerd op

On Friday 28th January 2022 from 4-7pm THIRD will organize a Mini Fieldings Forum. We proudly invite you to join an online programme around the recently published book on artistic research Fieldings – Propositions for 3rd Cycle Research in the Performing Arts. Together with Koleka Putuma, Erin Manning, Florian Dombois and Rosie Heinrich we will discuss questions and share examples of publishing artistic practices and publishing as an artistic practice in a round table conversation. Jennifer Lacey is invited to do a reading. Her portrayals of the first THIRD cohort in Fieldings are born from her longtime oracular, expanded hermeneutic practice.

Programme: Friday 28 January

  • 16.00 – 18.00h round table conversation with guests Koleka Putuma, Erin Manning, Florian Dombois and others, moderated by Ilse van Rijn
  • 18.00 – 18.15h short break
  • 18.15 – 19.00h reading by Jennifer Lacey

Please note: CET time. The programme will be updated.

Fieldings – Propositions for 3rd Cycle Research in the Performing Arts can be ordered at Idea Books.

A pdf is available for download on our website.

About the guests

Florian Dombois is an artist who has focused on wind, time, models, and on landforms, labilities, tectonic activity, scientific, and technical fictions. As a professor he teaches at Zurich University of the Arts, Switzerland, since 2011.

Rosie Heinrich is an art-researcher. Through multi-disciplinary projects she’s interested in the practice of listening and explores the constructs of self-storytelling, ventriloquy and spoken and wordless language. Heinrich is a fellow of THIRD’s Cohort 2 and one of the editors of Fieldings.

Jennifer Lacey is a dancer who makes things. She is currently responsible for the master’s programme in choreography at Stockholm University for the Arts. Lacey is a fellow of THIRD’s Cohort 2, and maker of the portrayals section in Fieldings of THIRD’s Cohort 1.

Manning's research spans the fields of art, political theory, and philosophy. She is a professor in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia University (Montreal, Canada) and the founder of SenseLab (, a laboratory that explores the intersections between art practice and philosophy through the matrix of the sensing body in movement.

Koleka Putuma is an award-winning theatre practitioner, writer and poet. Her bestselling debut collection of poems Collective Amnesia took the South African literary scene by storm. Koleka Putuma is the Founder and Director of Manyano Media, a multidisciplinary creative company that empowers and produces stories and works by black queer women.

Ilse van Rijn is a writer and art historian. Her research practice concentrates on the position and operative force of writing in/as art and its relationships with feminist approaches. Ilse is a tutor at THIRD and the moderator of the panel discussion.

About THIRD THIRD is a unique facilitating model designed as a three-year trajectory for small-scale research cohorts. Preparing transdisciplinary practitioners from across the performing arts towards 3rd cycle research opportunities, THIRD explores shared processes of peer support and feedback. By sharpening and refining the long-term aspirations of each fellow’s artistic research proposition, potential academic affiliations and funding possibilities come into focus. The cohort environment generates collective experiment through reflective and diffractive attention, affecting, with ease and rigour, the praxis of practice in artistic research.
