Maternal studies has been developing in recent years (Baraitser, 2009) and has been influential within visual art (Betterton, 2014; Chernick and Klein 2011; Liss, 2009; Pollock, 1999;) and drama (Komporaly, 2007) but has been overlooked in Performance Studies. Simic and Underwood-Lee are currently undertaking our ‘Performance and the Maternal’ research project, which asks ‘What happens to the maternal when it is represented/re-enacted in performance (as opposed to in a non-live art medium)?’.

The project begins with three network meetings of UK performance studies scholars and practitioners to explore the maternal in performance. These meetings will take place in Spring 2016 at The Institute for the Practice of Art and Dissent at Home (Liverpool), Edge Hill University (Ormskirk) and the University of South Wales (Cardiff). This paper will explore the findings of the network meetings which will map the field of performance and the maternal in the UK.
