This research has as its central focus some creative processes that permeate the artistic field, mainly those associated with performing arts. In this case such processes are seen as generators of an expanded field, which functions as catalysts of interdisciplinary knowledge and activates the exploration of a particular perceptual dimension, referred here as tacit dimension. Interdisciplinarity will be approached through two different levels: the first one, called intertextual interdisciplinarity, is determined by reciprocal contaminations which take place within the artistic field; the second level, named extratextual interdisciplinarity, encompasses exchanges that can occur between the arts and other fields of knowledge. In this respect, if the investigation into interdisciplinarity is going to allow the analysis of exchanges between different fields of knowledge, as explored by some creative processes, the research on the tacit dimension is going to allow the recognition of different zones of indiscernibility which can make us perceive these processes as real perceptual amplifiers and generators of modes of existence. Based on this preamble, it is possible to observe that, if on the one hand, some creative processes represent the nucleus of this research, interdiciplinarity and tacit dimension can be seen as its constitutive axes. Though this structure, some actions will take place, which will culminate in the publication of a book. In conclusion, it is important to observe that this project represents an opportunity to deepen significantly previous personal investigations. (AU)
