The Research Academy is an international platform based at Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK). It aims to develop artistic practices and foster research through the strong interaction between fellows, faculty members, the artistic community, and the general public.
We are happy to announce this year’s Research Academy for the Performing Arts at the Zurich University of the Arts and we invite practitioners in the fields of performance, dance and theatre to apply for being part of this artistic-research journey!

Opening up and publishing processes in performance creation
20 – 26 October 2017 at the Zurich University of the Arts & Tanzhaus Zurich
Research Academy 2018 is an intensive seven days Laboratory exploring the publication of results of artistic research in the performance field. RA2018 will provide participants the opportunity to explore making bodybased performance practices more explicit and sharable through new methods and forms of documentation. This will include experimentation with new video annotation software, innovative moving image recording (e.g. 360 degree film) and digital animation processes. Providing context for the RA2018 is “Research Video”, a practice-based research and software development project of the Institute for the Performing Arts and Film and “Cast/Audiovisual Media”. RA2018 is seeking applications from performance artists, dancers and actors for whom documentation of their creative and rehearsal processes is already an essential part of their practice. We are inviting applications from solo artists, small ensembles (duet or trio) and/ or those with a strong teaching practice.
Artists need not be working only on the stage or in the studio, but may be developing performance works (e.g. social choreography) with the public or in site-specific environments.
