Drama research

Research picKingston drama enjoys an active research culture, driven by a close-knit, dynamic team of researchers.

The diverse research interests of our academics and students constellate around two themes:

Contemporary performance practices

  • Performance-making methodologies including acting, directing and collaboration
  • Performance and identity (national/gender/class)
  • Intermediality and interdisciplinarity

Popular performance in its historical context

  • Surburban music hall
  • 19th century musical theatre and revue

Many of our academics are also performance practitioners actors, directors, writers - and much of our research has a strong footing in creative practice. A belief in the power of performance as a way of imagining or embodying a more socially equitable world, unites the scholarship of Kingston Drama researchers.
