Research interests

INTERRUPTIONS, INTERVENTIONS, INTERACTIONS

 

Rather than focussing on one specific medium of aesthetic expression, my research practice is built around the concept of interruptions which are manifested in a variety of media and methods. Thus I create and convene a range of events: solo and ensemble clown performances, public participatory Whatsapp Walks, visual art installations and sound works, performative interventions in public space, activist performance trainings, workshops and classes in Rebel Clowning and collaborative Chip Walks, all of which emerge from the notion of interrupting patterns of behaviour, perception and attitude. I write reports, working papers, journal articles, book chapters and blogs as well as giving conference presentations, invited talks and lecture/performances.

Teaching interests

I lecture on the BA Theatre & Drama, BA Performance & Media, BA Performing Arts and MA Theatre & Drama programmes. I've collaborated with colleagues in Geography on guest lectures and workshops. 

My teaching passions are: unlearning and undoing expressed in a variety of methods: clowning; walking; applied theatre/drama; site-specific performance; devising and improvisation; intersectionality, feminism and gender
