Cornelia Schmitz, M.A., has been working as a research fellow in the research project “On Remnants and Vestiges. Strategies of Remaining in the Performing Arts”. Currently she works on her doctorate entitled “Audiovisual Recordings as Instruments of Performance Analysis of Music Theatre“ at Freie Universität Berlin. She studied Theatre Studies and Musicology in Munich and Berlin. Her research is focusing on a discourse named the transitional of the transitory, or presence in transit. In this discourse the passages of the fleeting, and how they are being handled become traceable. Furthermore, she is investigating in a phenomenological approach towards the analytic handling of audiovisual recordings. Besides, she works in science and music management, e.g. for Academy of Arts, Berlin or University of Arts, Berlin.
