Your Artistic Research has a direct relationship to your Artistic Project. The starting point is a research question that allows you to examine the thematic of your Artistic Project in a different or a wider artistic, cultural, social, political, scientific or other context. The Artistic Research allows you to position yourself within this chosen context.
Where the Artistic Project results in a concrete theatrical production, the Artistic Research a is a non-result oriented exploration of how you function as an artist. You can consider alternate methodologies and strategies; you can replace the usual selection model of decision-making with alternate ways of open discovery. Artistic Research focuses on your possibilities and potentialities, opening up pathways rather than narrowing down your options to come to a product.
Your Artistic Research leads up to the Critical Reflection, the end communication of the research. The Critical Reflection can be an essay, a lecture-performance, a portfolio, a documentary, an exhibition, a seminar, etc. You choose a format that fits the content of your Research and that maximizes its communicative qualities. The Critical Reflection is part of your final evaluation.
