This panel will explore how contemporary performance practices perform, produce or practice empathy, referring to both pathos and the German Einfühlung as the act of “feeling into” both the body of another and / or an artwork. The panel is concerned with ways that performance artists can develop specific real-world practices, informed by the research of psychologists, that might overcome theoretical problems posed by philosophers. As four scholars across the fields of philosophy, psychology and performance, we offer a unique, international and interdisciplinary articulation of the problems that arise on the interstice of performance, philosophy and empathy.
