“Bringing Data to Life”: Encountering Dilemmas Within an Applied Theatre Multidisciplinary Research Project
In this paper a community based applied theatre director reviews the origins of a collaborative applied theatre arts and social sciences research project, summarizing the study and its theoretical underpinnings. The director highlights the study’s emergent themes and reflects on the choices of how these were woven into the play, No Particular Place to Go. Reflecting on the duality of roles within the devising process, the director discusses the importance of balance between artistic autonomy and research dissemination, the parallel roles of researcher and deviser, noting both the challenges and successes of research based theatre collaboration.
