The autonomy in creative process

In 2013, during my Ph.D. research at the University of Brasilia and The Graduate Center, CUNY, I created a multimedia theatre project called Misanthrofreak in which I had the chance to improve the idea of autonomy in a creative process. At that time, I was able to understand not only how I could alone build one project from scratch till its production, but also through the adoption of new technologies, I was able to manipulate lights, sounds, projections and live cameras onstage while I was performing. Besides establishing the idea of autonomy and hands-on experience, the idea of working with new technologies onstage has also improved my work as a creator. This lecture intends not only to approach the idea of new technologies onstage to optimize the creative process, but it aims to discuss the idea autonomy through all steps in a creative process.
