Practice and Research Activity


invited to give paper at TaPRA annual conference 2012

The Theatre & Performance Research Association (TaPRA) exists in order to facilitate research through and into theatre and performance. It is based on collegiality with a formal structure that intends to advance informal, productive and dynamic research networks.

The 8th Annual TaPRA Conference will be held at The University of Kent at Canterbury September 5-7, 2012.

Although membership is largely British and Irish, TaPRA welcomes international members and seeks to engage with research across a wide range of cultures, disciplines and geographies.

It aims to foster research that:
enables links between practitioners and scholars within our disciplines and across cognate fields;
liaises with specialist organisations and groupings;
encourages early career research in theatre and performance.
