‹ Back to What's On Institute of Psychoanalysis: Northern Summer School

15 Jun - 16 Jun 2018

The Institute of Psychoanalysis and Opera North present an introduction to key concepts in psychoanalysis in a two-day Summer School.

This exciting collaboration will bring psychoanalytic ideas to life by exploring the shared territories between psychoanalysis, opera and other performing arts, with their shared aim of telling stories with emotional intensity and meaning that have the potential to transform.

This is a unique opportunity to take part in a dialogue between performers, directors and psychoanalysts to explore the synergy between the two disciplines.

Learn about psychoanalysis, psychoanalytic interpretation and what becoming a psychoanalyst involves.

Explore performance as interpretation, the complexities of performing violence and psychoanalysis and film.

The Northern Summer School is open to everyone, including current undergraduate and postgraduate students from any discipline or background.
