Késia Decoté


Késia is a classical pianist, and her research investigates interdisciplinary strategies for the piano recital.

Késia has been exploring ways to shape the piano recital as a comprehensive work of art, incorporating concepts from theatre and visual arts in her performances. Késia has been questioning the traditional conventions of live classical music, and has been motivated to offer other possibilities of engagement to her audiences.

Késia started those investigations during her MA in Contemporary Arts and Music at Brookes and, after a brief period in her home country - Brazil, she came back to develop it further in her Ph.D.


Késia Decoté read for a PhD with the School of Arts
