Collisions Festival 2016: A Materialist Encounter

The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama is at the forefront of Practice as Research in performance. COLLISIONS is the annual event that showcases our thriving PaR community, specifically allowing research degrees students and creative fellows to collectively engage with what it means to be researching through practice and to share this with a wider academic audience.

“Collisions” refers to the collision of disciplines, methodologies, ideas and practices. It provides a platform for experimentation and exploration, with the practice shared likely to be processual, interrogative and exploratory, rather than highly polished and produced.

Through showing the work in this context – in momentarily opening up both creative and research processes to public scrutiny – we hope COLLISIONS acts as a fertile environment in which to exchange ideas. Through exhibiting our practice, we want to provoke and incite dialogue, so please check out our programme of events, come along and get involved.

COLLISIONS 2016 takes place from Tuesday 27th to Thursday 29th September. All events are free, however advance booking is recommended and can be done directly on each artists' event page,
