The group focuses on issues concerning the nature of performativity (past, present and future), necessarily interrogating the concept of the body as part of its brief. Interdisciplinary in its focus, the research group meets twice a term throughout the academic year, and hosts a series of guest speakers, practical seminars and workshops will be planned both on and off site.

Key research areas:

  • Formation – the performer in relation to neuro-physiological developments
  • Encounter – the experience of the permeable body
  • Enactment – layers of knowledge: touching the past through enactment
  • Transmission – confronting the limitations of movement discourse
