The Laboratory:

Creative Practices

This section hosts a collection of Zoom-generated ‘making of’ documentaries that give insight into the engineering of a selection of pieces of theatre and performance that come under the remit of Aural/Oral Dramaturgies. To some extent this format is a substitution for the rehearsal ethnography programme originally written into this project that was intended to focus on the R&D processes of selected Artists in Residence before Covid-19.

In its form, the Zoom ‘making of’ documentary is offered as an academic artefact accessible to the general public but also expanding on the artist-centred research methodology at the centre of this project. The artists were commissioned to create an-hour long, five-point presentation about a targeted piece of work using their personal project archives and the screen-share function of Zoom. The work was presented to Duška Radosavljević and Flora Pitrolo and occasionally included a Q&A. The artists interpreted the task in a pleasing variety of ways.
