RESEARCH & DRAMATURGY

Workspace, is meant as physical hub, where an investment on creativity with the aim to foster innovation occurs. This hub is designed in a network with other agencies operating in the same or related fields, in order to provide and exchange services and implement the knowledge production.

Inspired on a model, which is developed in the field of artistic production in northern European countries, Ricerca X aims to offer space and services to support research and applied research in the field of performance and choreography with the aim to develop creative processes, to support artistic trajectories and to open up a discourse on the artistic production in a network with the venues of the performing arts scene.

 

Objective

The pilot project (October 2015- November 2016) lays the ground for a workspace for the performing arts aiming to sustain the artistic production, implement the sharing of practices, offer an ongoing self-education based on parameters of horizontality, tutoring among peers (peer-coaching), and encourage the discourse with other agencies of related fields on the ecosystem of the performing, visual and hybrid art forms.

Content

The project consists of two lines of intervention:

1. To sustain the development of artistic trajectories through 5 periods of shared residencies – “sharing practices”

The support consists of:

*logistic support:
-5 shared residencies and accommodation

*artistic support:
-peer coaching
-tutoring
-methodologies of feedback
-artistic and dramaturgical support
2. To encourage the discourse on the ecosystem of the artistic production by proposing talks and symposium. In the encounters “thinking practices” artists, theoreticians, practitioners reflect with the audience on the micro and macro dramaturgy of the current system of artistic production.

Vocabulary

workspace

Specialized hub for research and applied research in the artistic field aiming to exchange and implement the knowledge production devised within the field.

peer-coaching

Tutoring between peers – professionals of the field.

artistic research

Producing knowledge through creative processes.

dramaturgy

We could define the minor DRAMATURGY as that zone, that structural circle, which lies in and around a performance production.
But a production comes alive through its interaction, through its audience, and through what is going on outside its own orbit.
Around the production lies the theatre and around the theatre lies the city and around the city, as far as we can see, lies the whole world and even the sky and all its stars.” – Marianne Van Kerkhoven

Dramaturg

The first spectator, the external eye of the creative process. The one who
actively (poetically and analytically) looks at the process.

WORKSPACE RICERCA X
RESEARCH & DRAMATURGY
WHO WE ARE

This vision emerged from multidisciplinary experiences developed in the daily exploration of the performative practices, in the theoretical interdisciplinary discourse and in the studies of international cultural policies.
The crossroad between these components direct our interest towards the phase of research, rather than the production, with the aim to serve, in a formal and informal way, the whole ecosystem of performing arts.

This project is born thanks to the relevant experience and dialogue with a.pass (advance performance studies), centre for the artistic research, based in Bruxelles, and the project peer-coaching initiated and curated by Company Blu, in Sesto Fiorentino.
