Abstract

This paper examines various perspectives on creativity fuelled by a current collaborative research project, Dancing Between Diversity and Consistency: Refining Assessment in Post Graduate Studies in Dance, in an attempt to arrive at some position on the value of creativity and critical reflection from the point of view of artistic practitioners within academic parameters. Within the array of guises and manipulations pervading attributions of creativity, artists seem to be discarding their long association with its rebellious nature in favour of intellectual endeavours that emphasise plumbing the unknown. Singular intention and methodology, however, suggest that rebellion may not be extinguished but merely transferred to another stage of unfolding.
