Artistic research in performing arts
Artistic research in the performing arts at the Academy of Music and Drama spans a wide artistic area that includes several different art disciplines: theatre, music drama, dance, performance art and other movement-based, participatory, or cross-disciplinary forms of performing arts. The research explores questions relevant to the field of the performing arts while interacting with other research fields and society at large. This includes research on acting and directing methods and their application within and outside of the theatre, game strategies within immersive opera, the relation between the live event and the documentary, institutional critique as well as decolonial and intersectional practices, and the exploration of new dramaturgic and narrative methods, and forms for publishing and making public. Research methods often involve bodily, collaborative, and performative aspects, and deal with issues related to archives, documentation, and the staging of experimental situations.
