My practice-based research explores the work of the theatre company New York City Players, and draws on key principles of the company's methodology to create and critically evaluate new forms of performance. 

Focusing on the relationship between visual art and theatre, my PhD enquiry examines the application of sculptural principles within a theatrical context.

 

I investigate the 'objecthood' of the theatrical production, the ways in which space, scale, material, colour, architecture, and a sense of potentiality are used to articulate form and to

enact a dialogue between representation and abstraction, image and object, body and space.
