For students specialising in all streams:
The subject extends the theoretical focus on performance creation while providing an introduction to research resources, practice-lead approaches and other research methodologies. Historic and current performance practice is re-examined, including cross-cultural, interdisciplinary and contextual perspectives with student seminar presentations and regular visiting practitioners who discuss their philosophies and approach.
Students develop a working understanding of appropriate research methods, including practical experience in locating resources (local and global) for specific inquiries. Attention is given to the problems of research writing and editing as they apply to higher degree research in the creative arts.
