This project intends to address questions brought up by the current Covid-19 pandemic situation that we are experiencing and it direct e(a)ffects in the performing arts education. The aim is to work in four separated blocks that overlap and dialogue between one another. Each phase has a research question to guide the conversation, such as: How can forms of distance learning be used optimally with a view to the artistic development of the performing artist? What are the personal consequences of distance learning in the performing arts in terms of contact, motivation and self- regulation? Can there be an embodied artistic-educational practice in a virtual environment and can it be shared?
Throughout an embodied investigation where the body of the researcher is a platform for experimentation, in addition to online interviews, collective discussions (seminars, lectures) and available resources that were/are generated during Covid-19, a publication-object Scape plan to stay (safe) will be created. In order to disseminate the body of work created in this one-year research, it proposes generate dialogues between institutions, professionals of the sector and performing arts students intertwining data through an artistic point of view. Investigating in which ways distance learning affect the bodies in performing arts, this research intends to broaden the possibilities of the experience and thinking within virtual education for both artist and art educator.
