There are several questions posing the art research field. Especially, in case of the performing arts including dance, the very relevance of research to the very practical aspects of the art form is often doubted. If at all convinced, then the next query would be about the nature of art research. Questions related to standards, disciplines, methodologies, objectives, relevance to the present day forms, challenges in the path, opportunities for research, the probable life span for research, etc., keep shooting up. In fact such questions can be attempted to be answered only with academic support which need to be constantly gauged with a practical outlook, especially in the case of a performing art to make research realistic.
Noopura Bhramari that started as an art periodical, took the form of a trust and later ventured into the publishing house and now has also opened a wing meant for art research; focusing on creating awareness about necessity of research in the field of art and also creating a platform for presenting papers for researchers- ‘Dance Researchers’ Forum’, has now created a history.
