University of Bristol

Theatre and Performance

The Department of Theatre offers supervisory expertise in a wide range of subject areas, including early modern theatre and performance practices, 19th and 20th-century theatre and performance, contemporary British theatre, adaptation and translation of theatre and performance, contemporary performance practices, performance archives, dance histories and practices, the role of the body in performance, philosophy and performance. The department has particular strengths in historical research and practice-as-research, and offers the opportunity for practice-based projects as well as projects based in the archives of the Theatre Collection, which is housed in the department: an accredited museum with the second-largest theatre archive collection in the UK. Should research proposals span various disciplines, a supervisory team will be assembled across departments and faculties to meet the needs of the project. Alongside faculty training opportunities, all first-year research students benefit from departmental training seminars covering critical and professional issues.
