This interdisciplinary international seminar provides an opportunity to learn, explore and refine research and research-creation methods in the performing arts with a focus on contemporary circus, theatre and other embodied live performance. With the growing number of practitioners returning to the university after productive careers in the arts and the increasing value of experiential learning, a clear need to define, theorize and understand the practice of research-creation has emerged. The seminar will offer a space to refine both the theory and practice of research-creation while also exploring the complexity, volume and effective use of research data produced by artistic research.
The main principle on which the seminar is constructed is that of experiential learning and self-reflexivity concerning the creative process. To this we add a thorough review and exploration of dramaturgical and documentation strategies.
The registration deadline is : March 1st 2021.
