Abstract

 How to share a process with peers and an audience is a valuable and urgent question to both academia and the artistic field. This article aims to contribute to an answer by questioning how within academia the process can be re-evaluated. In order to do so, it focuses on how the notion of unfolding provides the publication format A Series of Suggestions with the power to become a tool for sharing and thinking. This article does not only bring the perspective of the researcher into the discussion of collaboration within performance studies, but by doing so it shows the importance and consequence that result from a methodology in listening rather than composing.

Keywords: Unfolding, research processes, a tool for sharing and thinking, listening, researcher-as-dramaturg
