Performing Research

An innovative collaboration between theatre company Cap-a-Pie and Newcastle University, this project brings together the newest ideas with theatre.

Cap-a-Pie is back with Performing Research at Newcastle University for 2017!

Northern Stage: 7pm, 15 June. Tickets online or call 0191 230 5151.

Upcoming rehearsals for researchers at Newcastle University and interested members of the public: 6.15pm – 9.15pm, 4 May – 15 June. Sign up online or email

Come and join our group as we explore the latest research ideas through theatre and work towards a performance at Northern Stage.

You really don’t need any theatrical experience. An open mind and a willingness to get involved is all we ask for.

Performing Research offers a series of highly practical, playful and reflective workshops. Cap-a-Pie will lead an exploration into how theatre can create new knowledge and understandings within an academic research context, as well discover how we can turn ideas and explorations into exciting pieces of theatre and innovative engagement projects.

In residency at Newcastle University, Cap-a-Pie is exploring how theatre can create appropriate and rewarding impact, a vehicle for disseminating research and a means of conducting community engaged research. Performing Research explores how theatre and drama processes builds, strengthens and adds value to partnerships between universities and communities.

Cap-a-Pie runs a programme of theatre-based research at Newcastle University that is engaging local communities and theatre audiences and creating impact for researchers.

Performing Research is the start point for many creative collaborations between researchers, members of the public and communities.

We are always happy to meet researchers on a one-to-one basis. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with Cap-a-Pie on 07796 478 024 or email Katy if you’d like to discuss any ideas/questions you have.
