Excavating Titus Andronicus


An image of Kelsey Burns and me during research and development at NYU in the spring.  The project was looking at the how we might use somatic practices and contemporary performance aesthetics to stage/adapt/appropriate Titus Andronicus. I’m excited to say that I’ll be developing this work further with Christian Billing in 2018 at the University of Hull.  We’re making a mash up of Ovid, Titus and Hecuba to present to the esteemed folk from Theatre Without Borders.

I’m happy to say that my monograph, Theatrical Reality: Space, Embodiment and Empathy, is out now, published by Intellect.  It’s been a long time in the pipeline.  Looking forward to hearing what people think.  (Don’t mention the typos.)

The Violent Justice in Our Hearts on Resonance 104.4FM

Over the last few weeks I’ve been adapting my theatre piece about rage, justice and terrorism, The Violent Justice in Our Hearts, for the wonderful Resonance 104.4FM (available online for those of us outside London).  The programme has been produced by Nicholas Edwards-Longstaff.  It will be on at 8pm on Wendesday 2nd March.

The piece is part of an ongoing creative attempt to link autobiographical storytelling with documentary and essay forms. My aim is to bring intimacy to the exploration of complex political and social issues.  I hope it works for you.

Sharing Experiences of Stroke R&D Image

This is Who I am Nw

A good pal and former colleague, Richard Tall, shared his photos from the R&D sharing ‘This is Who I am Now…’  I thought I would put this one up as it is rather lovely.  It makes me hope I can find funding to continue the project.
