  • “Introduction: Ahr-tik-yuh-leay-ting Ahr-tis-tik Ree-surch”
    • Abstract: When Natalia Esling and I first began to imagine this theme issue of Canadian Theatre Review focused on Articulating Artistic Research, we were, fittingly, faced with the need to clearly articulate the territory we have set out to explore. What, precisely, do we mean by Artistic Research' This is a task that, in fact, began for me several decades ago, one that has evolved consistently over a wide range of different contexts, and one that, perhaps by definition, will continue to do so moving forward. As a performance creator who has also been employed within academic institutions, to some degree and in one or another capacity, for the past thirty years, the dual preoccupations expressed in the paired terms ...

  • “What Happens When...'”: A Meditation on Experimentation and
           Communication in Practices of Artistic Research
    • Abstract: One of the main goals of this issue is to explore a selection of ways in which artists/scholars are working with/in relation to Artistic Research (AR) and, ultimately, how those approaches are articulated within the format of a journal such as Canadian Theatre Review. Acknowledging the wide range of subject matter, intentions, approaches, and outcomes under the umbrella of AR, this issue offers a glimpse into these perspectives in a Canadian context. Part of the exercise of considering a range of perspectives and strategies for using and communicating practices of AR is to look to other contexts to compare and contrast, or simply to provoke discussions about the state of these practices on a ...

  • Work Quickly but Think Slowly
    • Abstract: Somehow, we found a productive middle ground between the structured rigour of the academy and the production pressures of the professional environment. [Pure Research] felt to me like a new environment. Nightswimming’s Pure Research (PR) program dates back to 1997.1 Now, acknowledging twenty years of both conducting and also exploring the idea of theatrical research, Nightswimming is looking back at the impact of the substantial body of work generated during that period. We are equally looking forward to future editions of the program and, most importantly, how Nightswimming continues to embody its precepts in our creation work. I first wrote about PR in CTR 119 (Summer 2004) in an edition of the ... Read More

  • Connective Tissue: Practice as Research in Cross-disciplinary Research
           Collaborations
    • Abstract: Practice as Research (PaR and its associated forms) is becoming established within a knowledge paradigm encompassing a broad spectrum of different artistic research practices in the performing arts. In this short essay, I first acknowledge and describe methodological characteristics of this work, which appear across different discussions and examples. My primary objectives, however, are to look at PaR in relationship to broadly established scientific and interpretive research paradigms; to identify the points of negotiation that cross-disciplinary research entails; and to discuss the additional capacity of PaR as “connective tissue” between, for example, creative practice and scientific research. These ... Read More

  • The Larval Journey
    • Abstract: One of the great challenges of any artistic pursuit is to create work that moves past previous efforts, to push the bounds of current practice and to discover new ways of working—to be original. The drive to be unique can often send the concerned artist down a road of second-guessing, over-processing ideas until they have been washed clean of inspiration and beaten into a pulp of artistic insecurity. The results often run the risk of becoming safe presentations that protect the vanity of the creator by resting close to previous accomplishments, holding at bay failure or severe critical assessment. It is easier to work with what we know. Exploring the application of an abstract ball of paper and tape ... Read More

  • “[So] What Do Dancers Know, [Anyway]'”: Voicing the Dancer’s
           Perspective through Emergent Choreographic Analysis
    • Abstract: How can we know what dancers know' As a dancer, somatics practitioner, and artist/scholar, my personal experience confirms for me that dancers develop specific knowledge about choreography that is distinct from other kinds of knowledge about dance works derived through observation and external analysis. However, in dance research, how can we value and include the dancer’s perspective as a voice of knowing, in productive complement to and potential conflict with those of choreographers and external observers, analysts, and critics' I enter the work. The choreography invites a shift from fixity to flux . . . I let go my movement signature, my recognizable and familiar identity and morph slightly sideways ... Read More

    • Abstract: What I want to write about is the idea of artistic research, how understanding and misunderstanding this idea has gradually affected me and shaped the work I’ve done over the last decade—one project in particular, performance encyclopedia, a co-creation by choreographer Ame Henderson and myself, which I’ll describe immediately, and then return to about midway through this brief account. If you attend performance encyclopaedia as an audience member, you arrive at the venue and, likely in the centre of the room, you see a group of people actively folding, binding, and punching papers, and one or two others carrying freshly printed bundles from a photocopier over to the table, where a few dozen or ...

  • Rhythm and Rumination: A Three-Course Conversation
    • Abstract: In the call for submissions to this special issue of CTR, editor Bruce Barton proposed that: “Artistic Research is usually not—or, at least, not primarily—carried out in the service of a specific production or project.” This begs the question: What is a specific production or project' For instance, I am writing these words with the express intent of publication in this issue. I embarked upon the pedagogical experiment that I present below knowing that I would write about it here. Foreseeing this outcome shaped my approach. In the experiment and its documentation, I knew that I wanted to explore: The relationships between dialogue and the senses. The role of rhythm in directing dialogue. ... Read More

  • Of Puppets and Prototypes—Proposals for an Intermedial Performance
           Design Practice
    • Abstract: Intermedial performance technologies may be likened to an inertia-ridden form of puppetry. Built from an assortment of computer-controlled video projectors, lighting instruments, and reactive or responsive media playback systems all mobilized—or entangled—as networked interactions between sensors, physical controllers, and performing bodies, it can all seem quite ambitious and impressive. Yet, the experience of operating within such entanglements may at times begin to feel like an attempt at manipulating a giant, multi-storey marionette1—the kind that typically requires dozens of highly skilled and intricately choreographed operators. In the quest to realize the full range and depth of gestural ... Read More

  • The Invisible Opportunity: All the Light We Cannot See (in Research)
    • Abstract: When I imagined attending graduate school, I pictured myself in a library with stacks of books on either side of me. That illusion is still accurate in sentiment, but replace the stacks of books with PDFs on my tablet. After experiencing vision loss through many surgeries prior to my undergraduate degree, I have no vision in my left eye and limited vision in my right eye, which complicates how I see details such as print or faces. I had imagined myself pursuing graduate studies in English literature, but as I carried on with my undergraduate studies as a blind, curious, driven woman, I quickly became fascinated with avant-garde theatre creation in a collective context, and felt compelled to challenge the ...

  • To ‘Hack’ and Back: The Professional Actor as Researcher
    • Abstract: Few things are more anathema to most professional actors in the theatre than the idea that what they do is ‘research.’ That there is a strain of anti-intellectualism inherent within many training programs and rehearsal halls when it comes to the actor’s work has been well recognized both inside and outside of the academy. The professional qualities that are most valorized within the industry are technical mastery—often referred to as ‘chops’—and a gift for behavioural and emotional identification. ‘Chops’ can take many forms: resonant voice production, clear word articulation, a supple and responsive body, the ability to memorize pages of text easily and accurately, the ability to reproduce physical gesture ...

  • Photo Collection
    • Abstract: “How is your artistic research or creative process different when there is no deadline associated with the project'” “Working without a deadline is freeing in some respects, but for me probably more challenging. Deadlines force decisions, and often decisions are hard to make. With a deadline one must accept that there simply isn’t time for perfection, and throw something on the table anyway. As often as not—and I mean that literally—those tossed off ideas have a great deal of merit. Some part of me also thrives on the pressure of a deadline. On the other hand, removing the time pressure can allow one to work in riskier, more unfamiliar ways. For me it is a chance to break my own mold, to let go of some ... Read More

  • A Practitioner’s Attempt at Quantifying the Actor’s Experience
    • Abstract: I’m a theatre artist—primarily a director, but for much of my career, I worked as an actor, and like most Canadians I worked in a range of mediums: theatre, film, television, and voice. I also teach acting for both screen and stage at college-level conservatories. I consider myself well-versed in the different technical demands that each of these mediums requires and I think about acting—a lot. A question that had always intrigued me was how my experience of acting could change from medium to medium and from context to context. A question that had always intrigued me was how my experience of acting could change from medium to medium and from context to context. This is not a total ... Read More

  • Practice and Research: A Report from the Academy
    • Abstract: On 2 December 2016, a round-table discussion took place at Simon Fraser University’s School for the Contemporary Arts (SCA) addressing the subject of Practice as Research. Present at the round table were faculty members from the SCA’s five disciplinary areas (theatre, dance, film, visual art, and music). The following is a report by a graduate student observer (SCA MFA student Patrick Blenkarn) who has attempted to make sense of the ideas voiced in the discussion. The italicized quotations are taken from a full transcript of the session and accredited according to the speaker’s primary area of practice. No snacks have been provided by the artists for the artists. The artists are initially ... Read More

  • Listening to Animals: Interspecies Understandings through
           Performance-Based Research
    • Abstract: Every moment with a horse is a dance; every dance is a performance; and every performance is a conversation. To spend time with a horse is to speak without words, and to make meaning through action, feel1, affect, and through resonance. If you are sharing space with a horse then you are communicating in this way and creating knowledge through performance. In human/animal2 contexts, the expressive action of performance speaks louder and more accurately than words. It is by privileging this performance—making movement, gesture, feel, and affect primary modes of exchange—that interspecies collaboration becomes possible. Through engaging this form of performance as the primary mode of inquiry (performance-based ... Read More

  • Interactive Research: Media Animator Performer
    • Abstract: As artistic researchers and educators in the York University’s School of the Arts, Media, Performance and Design, and Artistic Directors of Out of the Box Productions, we are advantageously positioned to investigate the developmental methodologies of interactive performance. For the purpose of this research, we have defined interactive performance as that in which: digital technology is a central strategy; there is a corporeal presence (live body) on stage; and there is real-time interactivity between the two. Our central and larger question revolves around the emerging methodologies used to develop this work, specifically in the search for solutions to the complex challenges raised when developing digital ...

  • Terms of Engagement: The Ethics and Aesthetics of Artistic Experimentation
           in the Rencontres/Encounters Project. A Dialogue of Sorts.
    • Abstract: Rencontres/Encounters (R/E) is a three-phased, multi-layered research-creation project that blurs conventional notions of what constitutes ‘community-engaged’ work, while proposing an ethical, experimental approach to advancing social engagement processes and artistic creation. Situated in a context of social unease around xenophobic measures such as Québec’s Commission on Reasonable Accommodation and the infamous Charter of Québec Values, R/E’s process foregrounds what Ric Knowles terms ‘interculturalism’ or “the contested, unsettling, and often unequal spaces between cultures, spaces that can function as performative sites of negotiation.” In recent years, I have become concerned that codification of ...

  • The Making of Making Treaty 7: A Practical, Philosophical and Ideological
           Templatefor Intercultural Collaboration
    • Abstract: Making Treaty 7 (MT7) is a landmark process of collaboration that spans multiple spheres of Indigenous/Settler interaction in Western Canada—social, political, ethical, economic, educational, and artistic. MT7 was initiated by the late Michael Green, former Artistic Director of Calgary’s One Yellow Rabbit Theatre, who was joined early in the leadership of the process by the late Blackfoot elder Narcisse Blood (Tatsikiistamik). In an unprecedented and nothing less than profound collaboration, Green and Blood oversaw a hugely ambitious, multi-year project of arts-based reconciliation that culminated in 2012 with the premiere of the interdisciplinary production Making Treaty 7. A reflective yet dynamic ... Read More

  • Artistic Research: An Articulation
    • Abstract: When considering the possible formats for the creative text section of this theme issue, we set out to establish a project that would reflect the specific characteristics involved in “Articulating Artistic Research” (AR). In particular, as discussed in the introduction to this issue, we sought an activity/object that would reflect AR’s embodied, situated, and emergent knowledge potential. We also wanted to create the opportunity for our contributors to work both singly and collectively. The result of this brainstorming was a collaborative AR project design—an evolving group invention of a possible research project that, through its imagining, became a self-contained artistic process. All of ... Read More

  • Editorial
    • Abstract: Lucy Lippard, in her book Lure of the Local: Sense of Place in a Multicentred Society, notes that the word ‘place’ has psychological resonances as well as marking social attachments. “‘Someplace’ is what we are looking for. ‘No place’ is where these elements are unknown or invisible ... some are being buried beneath the asphalt of the monoculture, the ‘geography of nowhere.’ ‘Placelessness’ then may simply be place ignored, unseen, or unknown ... Few of us in contemporary North American society know our place” (9). The vagaries of geography are central to defining our collective experience of being Canadians. One of the most potent (and obvious) defining characteristics of our country is that Canada is really ... Read More

  • You’re Invited, Canada: What I learned about making theatre from The
           Tragically Hip
    • Abstract: On Saturday 20 August 2016, one in three Canadians tuned in to the CBC to watch The Tragically Hip play their last concert in their hometown of Kingston, Ontario. From Rimouski to Red Deer, a better part of the country tuned in to shout for “Courage” and say a collective goodbye to Canada’s band. We’ve all heard about the motivation for this final concert. This spring, Gord Downie, the band’s charismatic man-with-the-microphone-stand, was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Following this devastating news, the band announced that they were going to cross the country one final time and in August, they ended the marathon in their hometown and Canada’s first capital. There were very few ... Read More

    • Abstract: “Stories are very important. I always tried hard to remember them. But now I am forgetting.” So said Qaunaq Mikigak of Cape Dorset, an Inuit elder and knowledge keeper who shared stories and songs about the legendary Inuit hero Kiviuq this winter with artists creating theatre based on his adventures. I work with Qaggiavuut, a society dedicated to supporting the Nunavut performing arts, and we have gathered together performers and elders from communities across Canada’s Arctic this year to build new Inuit theatre work. Qaunaq has always held fast to the stories and songs that she was taught as a child and is a rich resource. The Qaggiavuut Society was formed in 2010, and the organization has made ... Read More

  • Curating a Theatrical Commons
    • Abstract: The debate over whether beauty lies solely in the eye of the beholder runs through cultural history. It arises every time a critic makes a top ten list: Am I just naming the books or albums I like the most in the preceding year, or am I asserting these ten works somehow were in fact the best or most significant' HowlRound was born out of a conversation about love. All of us involved in its founding were thinking about this question. We were thinking about who and what we love and how that love gets expressed on a stage and shared with an audience. For my own part, I had been in a curatorial role for some time as an artistic director and as a director of artistic development at the Playwrights’ Center in ... Read More

  • Intermission and the Revolution of Audience Communication
    • Abstract: How do we motivate people to see more theatre' That was the question that inspired Intermission, which was launched in late spring of 2016. On its surface, Intermission is Canada’s newest online theatre magazine. It tells the stories behind the stories on stage. But it’s much more than another platform for the Q&As, previews, and reviews that make up the current theatre publicity tactics. It’s a playground for artists, marketers, publicists, producers, and arts journalists to come together in search of the answer to that core question. I founded The Company Theatre with Allan Hawco in 2004, and we produced our first show, Tom Murphy’s A Whistle in the Dark, in January of ... Read More
