A concert was held on Tuesday December 9th, at 20h00 at the World Music and Dance Centre, Pieter de Hoochweg 125, Rotterdam.
On Wednesday December 10th, out of the unique opportunity of gathering a team of international researchers and experts who are members of the jury of Barbara Varassi Pega’s PhD dissertation, a symposium on (artistic) research, (world) music and (tango) creation will be held, from 14h30 until 18h00, at Codarts Theaterzaal, Kruisplein 26, 3012 CC Rotterdam.
This event, aimed at students and the greater artistic community, will start with a lecture by Barbara Varassi Pega herself on the outcomes of her PhD research. After this, each expert will have ten minutes to address a subject related to (artistic) research, (world) music and (tango) creation, or to his own research or field of expertise. The symposium will conclude with a round-table discussion in which students and other participants are invited to ask questions and join the debate.
The international guests include Gustavo Beytelmann (Codarts Hogeschool, Rotterdam, Netherlands); Prof. Dr. Edgardo ‘Chino’ Rodríguez (Universidad de La Plata, Argentine); Prof. Dr. Esteban Buch (Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris, France); Leo Vervelde (Codarts Hogeschool, Netherlands); Dr. Wim van der Meer (University of Amsterdam, Netherlands); Omar García Brunelli (Instituto Nacional de Musicología de Buenos Aires, Argentina); and Prof. Dr. Enrique Cámara de Landa (Universidad de Valladolid, Spain).
