Our Work

Here is where we put into practice our beliefs and our instincts, to see just how well the practice supports the theory. From this body of work, research papers will be written so that other practitioners can judge the effectiveness of the Project outcomes.

All our performance work is conducted in the public arena by means of theatre productions and workshops, and is carried out by inamoment theatre company - please click here to go to the website.

 

Audio Plays

Going to the Theatre in Shakespeare's time was primarily an auditory experience; we are now exploring how our work can be best enjoyed through the medium of voice and sound. We will be conducting workshops to explore this potential, and as part of that, we will be looking at how our one-man Shakespeare-inspired stage plays can be re-presented in audio.
