I’ve got a long-standing interest in the work of Samuel Beckett. I’ve published a book, book chapters and articles on all aspects of his work, and I’ve been asked to speak on his work to academic and non-academic audiences. I was part of the 3-year AHRC Staging Beckett research project; as part of the project, we put together a database which gathered together information about all of the productions of Beckett in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
I’ve also published a book- the first on the subject- on rock music as a performance event, and I’ve co-edited books on the music and art of Kraftwerk and Brian Eno. I’ve also published on British theatre and performance, from the 1950s through to the present day; I’m an acknowledged expert on the work of the Scots playwright David Greig.
