We would like to say: welcome!

Our Department focuses on contemporary theatre and dance as intermediate, interdisciplinary, intercultural and international. Our areas of research focus are: dance; the theory and practice of dramaturgy; community arts; the impact of technology on contemporary performance practice; questions of embodiment and corporeality; and the relationships between the performing arts and the visual culture.
This website describes our Departmental activities. It also reflects our evolving understanding of contemporary practice as one of hybrid projects that both respect and erase the borders of and between theatre, dance, visual arts, music, media and daily life.
