About Our Network

We research performance; conduct research through performance; and research to create performance: ‘performance’ is a subject, a methodology, and an outcome. The Network enables us to: share our research; learn from each other’s methodologies and approaches; share teaching materials and exercises; and develop relationships with local practitioners, companies, and arts organisations.

PRN welcomes and involves participants from literature, theatre studies, human geography, creative writing, urban planning, music, business studies, architecture, fine art, culture and media studies, digital cultures, and beyond. In different ways our work examines forms of relation that unfold between performance and research.
