About this site

This site has taken several forms over the past five years. It started as a research blog for my PhD project on performing with objects called theatre machines at Aberystwyth University and became a place to mark all of the resources I was working with as well as an attempt to document my process. Recently it has served as a portfolio for my performance practice and after setting up a dedicated site for this I have decided to refocus this one. Over the past five years I have received many requests and questions about object theatre as a term/category/form of practice and so I have decided to use this site to share my research material. It is now a growing repository of information for those interested in making and thinking about performance with objects. (Currently under construction – the blog remains 15/11/2015)
