Northumbria Theatre and Performance Research

A research cluster at Northumbria University, Newcastle


We are a research cluster investigating theatre and performance at Northumbria University

Research in theatre and performance at NU is multifaceted, interdisciplinary and concerned to address ‘real world’ questions and challenges as made manifest in performances, and understood as or through performance. Working across practice research and more ‘traditional’ forms of scholarship, our research explores philosophical and critical approaches to performance to address questions of identity, social-justice, climate crisis, political underrepresentation, power, and performance futures.
