Conducting Artistic Research into the Performing Arts: 
Methods, Challenges, Practices and Dissemination 

Prof. Leroux along with a group of university researchers, professional circus school pedagogues and students from the world-renowned National Circus School of Montreal have engaged in a four year experiential research into the poetics and process of meaning-making in contemporary circus. Through a series of exercises, focused small public presentations, systematic observation, and discourse analysis, the team is working towards both a theory of creative process in contemporary circus and an embedded, experiential knowledge where there is a measure of risk involved, for the researchers. This talk will address questions of research-creation and action-research with the performing arts and some of the particular issues, challenges, practices and dissemination strategies that are associated with them.

Prof. Louis Patrick Leroux is a playwright, director and Professor at Concordia University and the Founding Director of the Montreal Working Group on Circus Research. He co-edited Cirque Global: Quebec’s Expanding Circus Boundaries (2016), has published extensively and given many international talks on contemporary theatre and circus. He is an ongoing Associate Researcher and guest teacher at the National Circus School of Montreal. In 2017, he was inducted into the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists.
