Collisions 2017

Sorry, this event has now passed
Research Event at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama

The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama is at the forefront of Practice Research in performance. COLLISIONS is the annual event that showcases our thriving Practice Research community, specifically allowing research degrees students and creative fellows to collectively engage with what it means to be researching through practice and to share this with a wider academic and public audience.

“Collisions” refers to the collision of disciplines, methodologies, ideas and practices. It provides a platform for experimentation and exploration, with the practice shared likely to be processual, interrogative and exploratory, rather than highly polished and produced.

Through showing the work in this context – in momentarily opening up both creative and research processes to public scrutiny – we hope COLLISIONS acts as a fertile environment in which to exchange ideas. Through exhibiting our practice, we want to provoke and incite dialogue, so please check out our programme of events, come along and get involved.

Collisions 2017 features:

Lior Lerman, Sally Rapier, Chi Ying Gigi LAM, Cathy Sloan, Amelia Cavallo, Dr Kiki Selioni, Nando Messias, Karoline Moen, Konstantinos Destounis and more.
