About

At Anglia Ruskin, our research focuses on twentieth-century, contemporary and experimental performance, interrogating both theatre-making processes and performance outcomes. It covers a broad spectrum of performance forms, including text-based theatre work; interdisciplinary and collaborative performance, involving such aspects as digital media, interculturalism, medicine, dance, physicality and music; devising and directing strategies; critical theory; and live art practice.

The interdisciplinary nature of our research creates a rich and stimulating environment for staff and students. You’ll benefit from a variety of research-oriented events, including our Faculty and Departmental research seminar series, performance events and international conferences.

We also enjoy links with the wider community, including local arts venues like The Junction, the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse and Kettle's Yard; the University of Cambridge's Centre for Research into Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH); and various NHS health providers.
