Utterly colorful and yet chaotic

A life born out of debt as symbiotic

Caged in green lush, more or less as a unique…

Posted by Gabrielle Senza on February 23, 2018 at 0:36 0 Comments

Theatre and Philosophical Principles

Theatre practitioners have often underpinned their training and performance practices with principles. Those principles can often be defined and described as being philosophical in nature and focus. Obvious names are Grotowski, Gordon-Craig, Suzuki and Artaud, to name but a few.This group explores theatrical practices based around or culminating in philosophical principles, which often begin not as philosophy, but rather emerge from theatrical practice itself.See More

Profile Information

Research Interests
Creating spaces for communal thinking through performance.

A central theme of interest is emergence - of knowledge, aesthetic form and social dynamic. Theory and praxis drawn from Expressive Arts Therapy and contemporary French philosophy - Gilles Deleuze/Felix Guattari, Henri Bergson.

Proposal for Doctoral Research:

This research investigates the relationship between creative emergence and impossibility in and through collaborative performance making. It draws on the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and associated process philosophies, as well as grounding this theory in performance-based research. The performance laboratory uses Expressive Arts (ExA) methodology and the researcher's experience of working in this field. ExA brings to the field of Performance Philosophy techniques that facilitate the two-way dialog between theory and practice, generating ideas grounded in experience that articulate with the existing knowledge field. The researcher aims to demonstrate a remarkable fit between the thought of Deleuze and ExA practice in order to contribute to understanding about the psychological and social nature of research and the generation of knowledge. Findings would bring new methodological possibilities to Performance Philosophy, insights to Deleuze Studies, and contribute new knowledge to understandings of creativity and collaborative practices in Theatre and Performance Studies and beyond.
