Within the research area Critical Performance Practice, a number of communication or publication projects were honored in which the realization or valorization of certain research output is aimed, and which tie in with current or concluded research projects. In this way, the realization of a number of performances of Artaserse could be supported in January 2013.

The study was already provided with conclusions in 2011, but the actual reconstruction of the historical opera by Johann Christian Bach from 1760 was only realized in 2013, in collaboration with the heritage cell of the city of Kortrijk, the University of Ghent, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. The musical direction of the performances was in the hands of Ewald Demeyere, who took the lion's share of the research together with Bruno Forment.
