My research interests centre on performance practice, especially directing, acting (and how these are brought together through rehearsal), devising and performer training. My recent research has focussed on Odin Teatret and now especially concerns contemporary directing and performance-making practices.
I am currently preparing a monograph on contemporary directing, as well as book chapters on directors' practice for edited collections.
My ongoing practice as research activities include Where’s My Igloo Gone? with The Bone Ensemble, a family performance that explores how theatre can engage with climate change. This work has been funded by Arts Council England, the University of Birmingham, several Trusts and commissioning partners and is accompanied by an interactive installation. Other recent work includes Caravania!, an intimate, participatory performance for family audiences of up to six people at a time, which has toured extensively, including to the National Theatre.
