Theatre as a research field is based on theatrical performance work and the field-specific knowledge. The subject offers opportunities for artists in the theatrical field to reflect on their own artistic practice. By developing new knowledge, understanding and skills in the field of performing arts, and putting them in relation to critical and theoretical perspectives, artistic research in theater intends to develop performing arts work and the performing arts learning process. Artistic research in this field can use theories and methods from a broad spectrum of art and research. The emphasis in the research studies program is to develop the artistic work through reflection, documentation, and in-depth study of both the own field and its connections to other relevant areas of knowledge.
