Research groups

Although the research in the arts is very diverse and has different approaches and methodologies, we notice that research groups / fields of expertise arise. In these research areas permanent expertise development and expansion takes place.

At the Conservatoire there are four research groups: LABO XIX-XX, Performance Practice in Perspective, CORPoRREAL and Creation. Also in the Academy there are four domains: Archivolt, Thinking Tools, Body and Material Reinvented and MAXlab. Both LABO and Archivolt work on archiving, CORPOREAL and Body and Material Reinvented around materiality and the body. Performance practice in Perspective starts from the source, in this case text or score, just as Thinking Tools starts from observation. MAXlab is the research platform that experiments with digital media. We invite you to explore them on their webpages.
