I am the module year coordinator for MA/MFA Performative Writing/Vade Mecum and tutor in Theatre Studies Online at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance. My research areas include the politics of digital culture, Internet-based dramaturgies, participatory and immersive theatre, performance documentation, archives, and performative writing. As a teacher, I am interested in decolonising knowledge hierarchies in the avant-garde canon, the theatricality of rightwing censorship, and creating practice-lead curricula in a post-pandemic context.
From 2017-2021 I was the artist in residence in the Library and Information Science department at City, University of London. In this role I convened the DocPerform symposia series, which investigated how performance can act as a document and the performativity of the contemporary information environment. I have also taught theatre and performance at Mountview Academy and the University of East London.
I’m currently creating a network of academics and artists working in the fields of theatre, gaming, and political science for a project on the far-right’s gamification of media for an AHRC funding bid. The project will investigate how theories and practices of participatory theatre can be applied as a method of re-radicalisation through the creation of multiplayer online games and LARPs. This is part of my ongoing research into the activist role theatre and performance can play in counteracting the attacks on democratic institutions by fascist, authoritarian, and populist movements.
