Discover innovative, enthralling and surprising performances where the newest ideas meet theatre.
Performing Research is back with a scratch night of brand new theatre created and performed by researchers at Newcastle University.
This time we are looking at three pieces of research; an investigation into the #thisgirlcan fitness campaign; how the government has worked out that Britain is 7.2 out of 10 happy and why they might want to do this; and a look at how our eyes and ears work together by delving into the depths of our brains – don’t worry no audience participation needed for this one!
Created and performed by the researchers themselves, in collaboration with Cap-a-Pie and associates – Josh Coates and Rebecca Louise Collins – this night is completely new and has been pioneered, developed and produced in Newcastle.
The pieces have been developed as part of Cap-a-Pie’s residency at Newcastle University where academics explore their research, alongside artists, in a creative and collaborative environment.
