Genesis: Genetic Research & Digital Visualization in the Performing Arts

Project: Research

Project Details


The research project ‘Genesis’: Genetic Research & Digital Visualization in the Performing Arts aims to conduct primary research in the domain of the performing arts, and more specifically in the genetic analysis of performance and the digital visualization of the creative process. Genetic analysis has to do with the study of all the stages of the creative process, from initial conception up to completion on stage. It focuses on the gradual realization of dramatic and scenic composition, on the creators’ elaboration of dramatic material, the identification and comprehension of the theoretical background of artistic thought and of artists’ sources and references, the study of the process of rehearsal, the training of actors, the management of space, stage, costumes, lighting, production, etc. The genetic approach of stage creation is nowadays considered a necessary presupposition for the scientific analysis and interpretation of a performance.
The project is based on the rich and complex work of two internationally acclaimed stage directors, Romeo Castellucci and Dimitris Papaioannou.
