The panel draws together practitioners and researchers from performing arts disciplines with interests in sharing their methodology on the spontaneous body as a site of creativity, knowledge, and an embodied way of knowing and learning. The panel focused on the visceral-intellectual nature of practice-as-research and embodied research to approach knowledge acquisition and generation while simultaneously questioning and exploring the body as a palimpsest inscribed upon by the ever-changing culture and society. We aim to ask and answer new questions and develop innovative research methods and pedagogies by bringing this range of methodologies into a dialogue through the panel discussion.
