Research matters

Our research places a strong emphasis on how theatre and performance relates to social justice, engagement with the public sphere, understanding the present through critical engagement with the past and international perspectives on performance.

We also focus on developing new forms of creative practice.

Our research informs our teaching and learning at all levels, and aims to connect people within and across diverse intellectual disciplines, publics, cultures and communities.

We’re committed to theoretically informed research throughout the major research groups that define our work, expressing areas of particular research strength in the department.
