Please follow the links below for information about my collaborative artistic research:
I have supervised nine PhD students to successful completion, and am currently supervising five. The vast majority of projects have been practice-led, and a number cross-disciplinary (for example, with Film and Art). They focus predominantly on theatre and performance in relation to the following themes: politics and identity; storytelling, autobiography and archives; neurodiversity, disability and mental health; migration and forced displacement; hybrid-media practice, intermediality and adaptation; post-conflict and post-memory; tangible and intangible cultural heritage.
- World Theatres
- Practical Option: Theatre
- Representing Conflict on Stage and Screen
