    The Media and Performance Laboratory (MAPLAB) at the HKU University of the Arts Utrecht (NL) is an innovative learning and research environment, focusing on creative processes involving performativity and interactive technology. The MAPLAB projects engage art students and educators, professional artists, and various external partners in disciplines such as theater, dance, puppetry, music, and visual arts. These projects typically combine the MAPLAB core activities of education, research, and technological development, stimulating students and professional practitioners through rapid prototyping and agile development learning modes. In addition, MAPLAB trains educators to guide creative processes in technologically enhanced environments.
