Live Art and Canonicity

Live Art and Canonicity

The Department of Drama explores how performance is made and shown in non-theatrical spaces, and the effects of aesthetic innovation, difficulty and risk on audiences and institutions. We particularly emphasise new approaches to the canon, either through reworkings of influential texts, the investigations of chronic illness through the archive, or oral histories that propose alternative histories of live art. We also publish collaboratively with artists.
