I am currently Lecturer in Theatre Practices at the University of Glasgow.
Focusing on contemporary and c20th practice, my teaching combines traditional university formats – lectures and seminars – with practice-based workshops. This approach is grounded in the belief that theory, history and practice can inform each other, and that performance can be used to ask and answer questions in the same moment. My areas of expertise include queer / LGBT performance, documentary and verbatim theatres and new media performance, as well as devising and improvisation.
Since 2013, I have lead the first year Theatre Studies programme at the University of Glasgow where I contribute to Honours and postgraduate teaching across the School of Culture and Creative Arts. My current specialist Honours options include Queer Exceptions – a course about performance, queer theory and ideas of the ‘singular subject’ – and The Activist Stage, an applied and social theatre course which examines the relationships between performance and activism.
