My new article, co-written with Dr. Laura Bissell, has just been published. Read it in Humanities.

Early Days: reflections on the performance of a referendum

Rob Drummond as Wallace Williamson (Act 3)

Dr. Laura Bissell and I have co-written an essay about how theatre and performance responded to (and contributed to) last year’s Scottish independence debate (available in a special issue of Contemporary Theatre Review on ‘Electoral Theatre’, and accompanied by a short film of interviews with artists).

Underneath the Arches


Underneath the Arches was a three year project by David Overend at the Arches arts centre in Glasgow. Between 2007 and 2010, a series of site-specific performances aimed to respond to and generate relationships in the site.
