Course content

Research interests include:

Whether engaged in practice or text-based research, we focus on the complex ways performance(s) interact in the public sphere, producing as well as representing myriad modes of social practice, aesthetic expression, and political intervention. Above all, we aim to enhance understanding of the role and function of theatre and performance in social and cultural life.

Our research is transnational, engaged in researching thematic areas indicated below in different ways and context ranging from North America and Europe to Africa and India in collaborative and interdisciplinary ways. We adopt many approaches including cultural histories of theatre and performance, community-based projects, ethnographic research, performance analysis, archival research, practice-as-research, performance pedagogies and technology enabled networks.
