The work of Performance [Re]Search is physical theatre at its most taxing and, for those spectators that enjoy challenging work, most rewarding. It is demanding work that investigates the performer’s presence and its perception. Each production focuses on the body of the performer as the fundamental artistic material at the centre of a spectrum of all possible materials, and attempts to give visibility to it as a source of creativity.
Performance [Re]Search was established in February 1994 by Serge Tampalini, Andrew Robinson and Sarah Cullity in Perth, Western Australia. 4 DVDs available individually and as a set.

An Adaptation of Jean Cocteau’s Opium: A Diary of a Cure.
DIRECTION and DESIGN: Serge Tampalini.
PERFORMERS: Andrew Robinson, Sarah Cullity, Aziz Rajil, Bouchra Ijourk.
Living Is A Horizontal Fall was designed and produced as part of the International Theatre Festival in Casablanca, at Theatre De Sidi Belyout and the Institut Francais, Casablanca, Maroc, September, 1995. The first performance of the work was given at the Murdoch University Theatre, August 1995.

"I currently lecture in theatre and design studies, specialising in performance theory; aesthetics and theatre semiology; theatre design and direction; and actor training. In 2006 I directed and designed the Peking Opera inspired production of Manuel Puig’s play The Kiss of the Spider Woman, and in 2008 was responsible for directing and designing the first professional WA production of Howard Barker’s Gertrude the Cry. In 2010 I collaborated with Dr David Moody and Associate Professor Martin Mhando on the theatre production, Witness - a performance-as-research project which featured inter-disciplinary work of devised and improvised theatre. In 2011 Dr Ralf Rauker (from Edith Cowan University) and myself were responsible for mounting a joint Edith Cowan University and Murdoch University production of Bertolt Brecht’s Baal." - Serge Tampalini
