Research theatre

Una Chaudhuri

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter enumerates the principles underlying the practice called Research Theatre, as well as the main ingredients of any given project: an initiating set of research questions, a critical discourse, and a series of improvisatory explorations called “etudes." It then describes three projects that preceded the one that this book is devoted to. The first was a project on globalization and consumer capitalism (The Resistance Project), the second was on the Iraq War (The Queerak Project), and the third was on the new field of Animal Studies (The Animal Project).
