  • The project

Conceived as an international platform, the Performance Lab brings together a community of researchers who are exploring contemporary issues that link embodiment, society and technology.


The ambition of the project is to renew the ways in which research is conceived and practiced at Univ. Grenoble Alpes by developing new methods inspired by Anglo-Saxon notions of Performance as Research (PAR), research creation, practice-led and based research.

The aim of Performance Lab is to conduct state of the art research in the fields of performance, digital documentation, performance literacy tools and immaterial and material forms of heritage. The collaborations that will be put into place with non profit and cultural partners in the professional art world both nationally and internationally will allow us to build cutting edge artworks, new tools and methods, as well as innovative documentation that can be integrated into the fields of performance and social sciences.
