Mathilde Pavis My doctoral research investigates our legal understanding of performances and performers creativity. Drawing on the cultural assumption that performers are lesser artists, Intellectual Property Laws (authors' rights/copyright, performers' rights) provide them with limited rights and protection for their work. As artists using their body to perform someone else's work, performers are seen as less creative, and therefore, not as worthy of authorship as true authors. My thesis will investigate the impact on the law of such cultural beliefs and assumptions the conception of performances, authorship, creativity and the body.  It compares the legal framework of France and the United Kingdom.
