This cluster will explore the dynamic relationship between creative practice and cultural analysis.
Specific research areas include:
- The notion of creative practice: what does it mean to create?
- Theories of performativity.
- • The interrelationship between Modern Languages and the “aesthetic field” (including theatre, film, music, visual art, dance, performance art).
- The relationship between translation, performance and identity; the practice of translation for the stage. The ways in which theatre and performance cultures travel within and beyond national boundaries.
- Theatre text and performance: cross-fertilization and cross-contamination. Feminist, philosophical, psychoanalytical and pedagogical approaches to the theatre text in contemporary European contexts.
- Elements of an ”aesthetics of the performative”, including Presence/Co-presence, Spatiality, Physicality, Sound/Voice, Rhythm, Emergence.
- The theory and practice of performative teaching and learning.
