Perilous Experience? − Extending Experience through Artistic Research

CARPA = The Colloquium on Artistic Research in Performing Arts

Artistic research, art-based research, practice-based research, practice-led research, performance as research – these are just some of the terms and approaches that have been developed to describe knowledge production originating from artistic concerns.

Carpa is a biennial colloquium, organised by the Performing Arts Research Centre at the Theatre Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki, aimed at addressing the problems and possibilities of artistic research, particularly those involving the performing arts. The term ‘performing arts’ is here understood in a broad sense that encompasses a variety of different creative practices. The purpose of these colloquia is to contribute to the development of research practices in the field of the performing arts and to foster their social, pedagogical and ecological connections.
