My research focuses on ways of creating, understanding and articulating performance practice through interdisciplinary, intercultural research.

I combine professional level Practice as Research (PaR) with award-winning RedCape Theatre www.redcapetheatre.co.uk  with innovative ways to re-configure and disseminate histories of performance and training; particularly focusing on women’s legacies of training.

I am also currently working with international network ArtsCross (http://rescen.net/events/ArtsCross_index.html#.WTUp29y1vcs) a long term initiative bringing together academics and artists across cultural, national and artistic borders.  The project is led by ResCen at Middlesex University and partners include QMUL, Sadlers Wells, The Place, Step Out Arts, Beijing Dance Academy, Taipei National University of the Arts, Shanghai Theatre Academy and Hong Kong Academy of the Performing Arts.

I am co-editing a new Routledge book series Perspectives in Performer Training (with Dr Maria Kapsali, University of Leeds). My own book in the series is forthcoming in 2019.

I am also Director for the Centre for Contemporary Performance Practices http://humanities.exeter.ac.uk/drama/research/centres/contemporaryperformancepractices/ and Associate Editor for journal of Theatre, Dance and Performance Training http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/rtdp20/current
