Call for articles – Act. Zeitschrift für Musik & Performance: Artistic
Research and practice-as-research in the field of music theatre

*Closing date: 1. November 2017*

In the Anglo-Saxon world, Artistic Research and practice-as-research are
established as veritable fields of research or research methodology whereas
it is still barely touched and even partly rejected in the German-speaking
scientific community. Reenactment research, which is often restricted to
historical or historically-informed performance practice, is also relevant
in this context. The research institute for music theatre (*fimt*) of the
University of Bayreuth plans a research focus at this interface between
theory and practice. While practice-as-research seems to be relevant to
scientific questions focusing on art, Artistic Research might be useful for
theatre, music and art-sciences strategies for other disciplines.

In a new volume of the online magazine *Act*, we focus on the possibilities
of Artistic Research and practice-as-research for theatre and musicology in
general and specifically for the music theatre studies and music theatre
practice in particular, as well as the theoretical implications and
application-related practical examples.

Possible contributions concern the following aspects:

   -

   Methodology of Artistic Research and practice-as-research in the context
   of musical theatre
   -

   History of Artistic Research and practice-as-research in the context of
   musical theatre
   -

   Opportunities and challenges in cooperation between theory and practice
   -

   Scientific-theoretical questions: How much practice can be tolerated in
   science?
   -

   Artistic Research as a stimulus for contemporary musical theatre
   -

   Reenactment theory and practice in the context of musical theatre
   -

   Reports of projects already undertaken in the area of Artistic Research
   and practice-as-research in the context of musical theatre

We would like to invite all authors who are interested in the topic to send
us their abstracts. We accept contributions in German and English.
