As of 2021, the National University of Theatre and Film in Bucharest (UNATC) sets out to organize a yearly ART RESEARCH CONFERENCE, under the ARC UNATC heading, aiming to bring together studies, research and practices primarily in the performing arts and film, but also in connected fields, with a focus on interdisciplinarity and the intersection of domains, from science and emerging technologies, to music and design, from theory to interactivity, from fundamental research, to experimental and restorative research in the arts and through the arts.
The theme of the 2021 Art Research Conference is ADAPTIVE STORYTELLING open to postgraduate students, professors, practitioners and researchers invited to present their findings in both theory and practice from the following fields: theatre, film, performing arts, visual arts, design, architecture, cultural studies, humanities, but also from more technical fields that make use of the arts to tell stories, such as AR, VR, MR, game design, AI-driven art, interactive tools or specialized fields of technology highly consistent and relevant to the proposed theme.

ARC UNATC 2021 │ KEYNOTE LECTURE

Performativity of Documents
Performativity of DocumentsThere is something in theater that resists the truth of a document. Many performances based on documentary material raise the question “did this really happen” in a spectator. The reason for such questions is in the very dispositive of theater, which creates disbelief rather than creating belief (Pirandello says in Six Characters in search for an Author to “deal with theater, that is, with the truth to a certain extent”).
This means that when we stage a document, we are primarily staging the attitude of the theater to a performative dimension inscribed in the document. There are documents that call for being staged. Not necessarily to reveal something unknown, something hitherto hidden, but rather to show how theater in itself resists a one-way relationship to real events.
The document is already mediated in itself, it is a medium. But as such, it participates equally in the construction of reality as the event it represents.
Janez Janša is a contemporary artist who in 2007 together with two other Slovenian artists changed his name into the name of the conservative, two times prime-minister of Slovenia. Before and after this radical artistic gesture Janša has been working as theatre director and performer of interdisciplinary works that focus on the relation between art and the social and political context surrounding it, reflecting the responsibility of the performers as well as the spectators. Many of his works deal with the very status of performance in neoliberal societies.
He created e.g. (together with Peter Šenk) a Refugee Camp for the Citizens of the First World (2004) and devised We are all Marlene Dietrich FOR (with Erna Ómarsdóttir, 2005) as a performance for soldiers in peace-keeping missions in the tradition of famous army entertainment shows. In his exhibition Life in Progress (2008) the audience itself reenacted famous historical performance art actions. For Janez Janša artistic practice, theoretical reflection and political involvement are not separated: He is also the director of Maska, a non-profit organization in publishing, production and education, based in Ljubljana, Slovenia and edited several books on contemporary dance and theatre. He is author of the book on early works by Jan Fabre, La discipline du chaos, le chaos de la discipline, 1994.
He is currently fellow at the International research center Interweaving Performance Culture at the Freie Universitat in Berlin.

Critica teatrală ca depozitar al istoriei teatrale
(Theatre criticism as a repository for theatre history)
Theatre criticism as a repository for theatre historyAbstract – research process motivation (restoring the professionalization process in theater criticism in the context of communist politics, ideology and aesthetic constraints; restoring the most representative stylistics in theatre journalism; restoring individual voices; the relation between criticism and the theatrical model of “socialist aestheticism”).
Methodology and corelating methodologies (historical context, political context, ideological analysis of the dialogue, rhetorical analysis of the communication, sociological perspective).
Selecting the representative events, from a political social stand point. Textocentrism vs Director-centrism. Critic’s social, political and intellectual context. Case study role (1). Rapport between theatre journalism and research. Criticizing theatre criticism.
Theatre criticism and theatrical/ perceptual model. Consolidating the percept; preserving the percept under the siege of Ode to Romania /Cântarea României. Case study role (2).
Rhetoric archeology – a methodological approach.
Miruna Runcan is a Romanian-born writer, semiotician and theater critic. She received a PhD in Theater’s Aesthetics from the Bucharest University of Theater and Film in 1999 on a complex historical and aesthetic research on the Romanian modern stage-directing and theater theories, from 1920 to 1960. After 1989, she was involved in several activist and theatrical projects, both in media ethics and theater criticism. She published the first Romanian book on media law and ethics, for young journalists, followed by The Fourth Power: Ethics and Law for Journalists. After 2001, she is professor at Babeş-Bolyai University of Cluj, Romania. Still, theater criticism and interdisciplinary studies on media, film and theatre constitutes the principle field of her activities in research, writing and teaching.

Teatrul independent în Polonia – Narative eficiente și ineficiente ale schimbării sistemice
(Independent theatre in Poland – effective and ineffective narratives of systemic change.)
Independent theatre in Poland – effective and ineffective narratives of systemic changeStatistics show that there are over 700 independent theatres and over 100 institutional theatres in Poland. Logic dictates that it is the former that should shape the image of theatrical life in the country. However, this is not the case at all. Why? The problem is the inequality of the system which organises the functioning of both streams. Independent theatres lack the space to work, the resources for production, the competent theatre criticism, and the possibility of exploiting ready-made performances. For over five years grassroots initiatives, such as the National Theatre Offensive, have been trying to change this state of affairs. They build and test narratives that could prove effective in conversations with politicians at the central and local level, as well as those that have the power to unite the industry around common problems. In my speech I will deal with these narratives, I will tell about the successes, but also numerous failures on the way to changing the theatre system in Poland. I will introduce the mechanisms of functioning of the theatre mainstream (financing, education, festival life and theatre criticism) and confront them with the mechanisms that govern the off stream. As an example I will use the tools developed by the Nie-Taki Theatre Foundation, which I run: the “nietak!t” magazine, The Best Off Competition, but also the Off-Polska grant programme newly launched in Poland. Finally, I will ask myself a perverse question: is it really the right narrative that allows us to change the world for the better?
Katarzyna Knychalska is the founder and president of the Teatr-Nie Taki Foundation in Wrocław, publisher, editor-in-chief of the Teatralny.pl portal and the magazine on independent theatres “nietak!t”. Co-founder of the National Theatre Offensive, which aims to unify the off theatre movement, programming consultant at the Teatr im. Helena Modrzejewska in Legnica, director of the Nie-Złego Theatre Festival in Legnica, curator of the off trends at the Shakespeare Festival in Gdańsk and the New Theatre Festival in Rzeszów. Director and juror of The Best Off Competition. She is the author of many articles and essays on theatre, as well as plays and theatre adaptations staged in theatres in Poland and Europe. A scholarship holder of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage “Young Poland”.

Tadej DROLJC, PhD
Audiovisual Escapology: Cross-Modal Extension to the Musical Idea of Tension and Release
Audiovisual Escapology: Cross-Modal Extension to the Musical Idea of Tension and ReleaseFor me, the essence of audiovisual art are audiovisual relationships. I am especially interested in cross-modal perceptual groupings and through various examples of my work, I will present different types of groupings that underpin numerous emerging or trending audiovisual aesthetics. Audiovisual composition, on the other hand, I see as an art of how to move between these various types of groupings over time. My practice usually revolves around constraining and liberating sound and image from each other and this drama I call the audiovisual escapology.
Tadej Drolic is a Slovenian artist and creative coder who works at the intersection of sound, image and light.
For his work Tadej was awarded the Lumen Prize Student Award, Dennis Smalley scholarship in electroacoustic music and he won the most promising Video Artist prize at Madatac. His practice based doctoral research was awarded the Vice Chancellor’s Award for an outstanding thesis at the Centre for Research in New Music. A work from his collaborative project Synspecies won the Edigma Semibreve award and was shortlisted for the Lumen Prize in category moving image.
Tadej performed and exhibited at festivals such as Ars Electronica, Paris Biennale NEMO, L.E.V., Brighton Digital Festival, Semibreve, Sonica Glasgow, Lunchmeat, Node etc. As part of his collaboration with Ars Electronica’s Future Lab on project Immersify his works were also presented at events like Inter BEE Tokyo, IBC Amsterdam or Marché du film – Festival de Cannes.

Stories lie at the basis of human experience. Our minds are shaped to see stories everywhere – from a random leaf floating downstream, to funny shapes ground coffee makes at the bottom of a cup, to one single moving dot on a screen. We tell stories to communicate with each other, to make sense of the world, to entertain ourselves and our fellows.
Stories bear the ever-present conflict between fixed forms and fluidity, using adaptation to maintain the core of the story whilst remapping itself onto newer listeners or viewers. Actors adapt to their audiences; Commedia dell’Arte involved a continuous dialogue between improvisation and pre-written texts. Forms of improvisation theatre use low but efficient techniques to build adaptive storytelling.
While a story can be fixed in a script, stories time travel and are re-told. The printing press fixed novels in books as a culmination of storytelling. Cinema fixed stories on celluloid and turned actors into stars. Later on, in the digital environment, what was fixed became fluid again. The end can become the beginning, the dead can resurrect on screen and entertain us once again with cutting edge techniques such as vidding, produsage or datamoshing, which are already becoming widespread practices in online video content where audiences interact with ready made content in shaping new stories.
With the advent of stronger and stronger computing power, a new ideal is emerging: interactive storytelling. Story is strongly linked to the technology and the medium through which it is told. Besides delivering targeted commercials, nowadays AI can simulate speech and draft scripts. Games use AI in emulating non-human players for bringing action and realism to digital worlds. Will we be living the dream of a digital storytelling machine?
Restorative research, on the other hand, can also be a complex form of storytelling, aiming to recuperate and reevaluate significant moments in the history of performing arts. Restorative research brings forth stories of personalities, performances, innovative artistic movements that fundamentally changed the shape of contemporary art. It is our duty as artists, practitioners, theorists, educators and researchers to create spaces where stories can be told, where narratives can be reframed and understood through the lense of contemporary culture, and where the memory of stories past can be brought to light.
We invite you to submit papers for the international interdisciplinary conference themed ADAPTIVE STORYTELLING that will be held in situ at the National University of Theatre and Film in Bucharest (UNATC), in Bucharest, 2-5 December 2021. Given the current global situation and possible travel restrictions, the conference will also be broadcast live with the open possibility for online participation, although priority will be given to in situ participation.
