Once a year BAU organizes a BAU Lab in coproduction with Festival WhyNot. This lab project focuses on expanding artistic practice through interdisciplinary collaborations. High-level research is being conducted on the collaboration between independent performing arts and other disciplines, e.g. music, technology, visual arts or architecture. Using a structured working process, professionals engage in intensive discussion, share their expertise and conduct experiments under the guidance of subject matter experts. The Lab is an intensive melting pot of 4-7 days that concludes with a public presentation.
