As a major contribution to the field of postgraduate activity in drama, theater, and performance, this resource identifies the essential characteristics of practice-based research across a range of countries, contexts, forms, and applications. A vital theory-based guide to such study, topics include locating practice-based research within historical, aesthetic, and educational settings; challenging received ideas of dramatic practice as thesis; distinguishing research from reflection and feelings from findings; and pushing practice-based research into new areas of critical inquiry. The reference includes extensively written case studies of projects from Hala Al-Yamani, Annette Arlander, Robert Germay, Helka-Maria Kinnunen, Felix Nobis, Allan Owens, Helen Paris, Yoni Prior, and_Leena Rouhiainen.
