The group takes an interdisciplinary approach to investigating how audiences engage with and are engaged by a range of theatre forms, performance and the arts.
The aim of the Bodies and Performance research group is to explore, capture and articulate, through theory and practice, the way performative bodies are presented, constituted and understood in contemporary contexts.
The Digital Performance Research Group brings together researchers from multiple disciplinary perspectives in the study of performance, digital media and cultures, with the aim of better understanding critical contemporary interfaces between humans, environments and technologies.
The group aims to position training within a larger context of performance practice as well as Theatre and Performance Studies and to explore processes of preparation in a number of creative fields, such as dramaturgy, composition, theatre directing and devising.
The group examines how place functions beyond the theatre building, focusing on the reciprocal relationship between people and place in both built and natural environments.
