Dissertation Title:

Formal Possibilities in the Theatres of the Anthropocene

Biographical Information

I read English as an undergraduate at Cambridge, before moving on to the Royal College of Music for a Graduate Diploma and Masters in Vocal Performance. After a number of years working as a freelance opera singer, I returned to Cambridge for an MPhil (my dissertation was on Philip Venables's operatic adaptation of Sarah Kane's 4.48 Psychosis). I am now a PhD candidate studying theatrical form in the Anthropocene, supported by a Judith E. Wilson Studentship.

Research Interests

Theatrical form; (theatrical) space; the ethics of care; mourning; theatrical half-life; address; song; play; theatrical magic; structures of attention and concentration; non-verbal communication and understanding.
