Personal profile

Eugénie is currently working on a PhD thesis in which she explores the relationship between movement, intimacies and space in contemporary 'physical theatres', in France and in the UK. Her examples include the work of itinerant French company Escale, of theatre maverick Jean Lambert-wild, and draw on her own experience as a performer and theatre-maker. She was awarded a Thomas Holloway scholarship for her PhD.

Her research focuses on questions of embodiment, of the potential subversive dimension of the use of physicality and movement, of voice as gesture. The approach she uses in her research combines ethnographical tools with embodied phenomenological responses to live performance.

Along with her academic activities, Eugénie has been for the past two years an active member of Little Bulb Theatre, a company based in the South-East of Englanc, and she performed, co-devised and played music in several of their productions. The latest one to date is Operation Greenfield, which was performed at the Soho Theatre in May 2011.

She has teached in the Department, on the course 'Boundaries of Performance'.
