CORPoREAL is an inter-artistic (dance, drama and music) pedagogical research platform, founded in 2014 at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp. It supports, develops and disseminates research into the physical and experiential processes and knowledge in the performing arts.
With "Collaborative Research in Performance" CORPoREAL wants to make processes and practices of implicit, physical and sensory knowledge and expertise explicit through artistic processes, and in relation to the surrounding context.
Through "Re-imagining Embodiment, Art and Learning", CORPoREAL examines the aesthetic, cultural and educational values and possibilities of this experiential artistic knowledge for the artist and society.
In collaboration with artistic and art education partners, a research space is opened in which performing arts, the artist and society are the core.
