Hello – I’m Stephen Greer, a theatre academic and cultural critic based in Glasgow, Scotland. I’m the author of Contemporary British Queer Performance (Palgrave 2012) and the new book Queer exceptions: solo performance in neoliberal times (MUP 2018) as well as a range of essays and articles about British and European theatre. I most often write about live performance and the politics of sexuality and gender, but have broad interests in the cultural politics of visual art, TV, film and video-games.
In my recent work, I’ve been exploring the contentious relationship between contemporary performance and the conditions of neoliberalism. My next major project focuses on the history of Live Art in Scotland.
