Play/writing Participation: Textual techniques employed by the playwright to create space for audience participation and co-authorship in performance

Research summary

Focusing on the intersection between new writing and contemporary collaborative theatre practice, my research will employ a practice led methodology to explore how playwriting can extend our knowledge of the aesthetics, ethics and politics of audience participation, developing our understanding of what a ‘written’ text can be and do.
