Detailed Description

ResCen, Centre for Research into Creation in the Performing Arts is pleased to announce the publication of Navigating the Unknown: The creative process in contemporary performing arts, published by Middlesex University Press.

This unique publication offers a fascinating insight into the different kinds of processes that practitioners in the performing arts undertake in their creative work and considers the implications these processes have in the wider world.

Based on a five-year research programme supported by NESTA (National Endowment of Science, Technology and the Arts) this publication brings together internationally renowned performance makers in the fields of dance, performance, live art and music who share their creative processes.

Chapters take us through analyses, reflections and conversations which address key issues in the creative process: intuition, inspiration, working processes, refining and presenting to an audience. The points of reference are diverse, from Plato to Poohsticks. Experts from disciplines outside the performing arts reflect on these processes from their own perspective, showing us the potential of creative work to help us understand the world around us.

This publication is unique in its bringing together of academic research and the artist’s voice. Beautifully illustrated and imaginatively designed, it will be indispensable to those involved in performance studies and the performing arts. The book’s accessible style also makes Navigating the Unknown an outstanding addition to any performing arts enthusiast’s book collection.
