This webinar will present a variety of approaches for using performance as a research methodology. Each presenter has used performance as a methodology of exploration and creation and will share the emergent design that evolved from their process. Using embodiment in engaging the creative process allows for a mobilization of resources including emotional, ancestral, ecological, social, spiritual, physical, cognitive, sensual, intuitive, cultural and more. The telling of stories and the expression of personal narratives through a wide variety of art forms to a community of witnesses can be a powerful experience for all involved and contributes to new ways of knowing and engagement.
