In the Centre for Theatre Research we are all professional theatre practitioners.
The Centre for Theatre Research (CTR) combines staff members who are active professional theatre-makers, practitioner-researchers and historians to deliver outstanding research and research-led teaching.
We work in the intersecting worlds of professional theatre-making and theatre and performance scholarship as writers, directors, actors, theatre-makers and historians. We have specialisms in playwriting, immersive and interactive theatre-making, early modern drama, 19thcentury directors/actors (e.g. Ellen Terry, Edith Craig), documentary theatre, applied theatre, global theatre, and in the analysis and performance of classic texts.
Our members also research and contribute to The Screen and Performance Research Network, an ongoing collaboration between LiFTS and East 15 Acting School. This research network is home to three research clusters; Lived Experience and Creative Process, Embodiment and Perception, and Global Perspectives and Intercultural Practice.
