About the talk

The line of research which informs this talk at C-DaRE arises from the need to deal with the documentation of a diverse range of art forms, such as literature, theatre, cinema, dance, etc. This documentation offers researchers archives of creation, in the form of diaries, notebooks, notes, audio-visual records, etc, therefore enabling an understanding of the principles that guide the creative processes of the artists studied.

It is research that offers the possibility of investigation and insight based on the creative processes, which is not informed by preconceptions or existing narratives. The methodology was widespread: including many researchers, especially in the case of theatre and dance, following the process, generating other documents under the form of annotations, photographs, audiovisual records, etc.

Many theatre and dance groups invite filmmakers and/or photographers to record their journey (workshops, improvisations and rehearsals), generating research materials that nurture the members of the groups simultaneously, providing documentation for researchers interested in creative processes.
