In my research, teaching and professional practice, I investigate the ways in which artists understand, articulate and reimagine specific places. In this work, I use ‘performance’ as a means of making sense of place in architecture, art/theatre/performance and everyday practice – separately or in combination. In so doing, I am closely engaged with identifying and understanding artistic responses to the conditions, practice and politics of a place - and the status of bodies, identities and cultures in and of that place. Such work is grounded in understanding the possibilities of performance as both a practice and a mode of analysis.
I am Research Lead for Theatre and contribute to the Theatre undergraduate programme.
