Performance Research Network: Performance lost (and found). Research and Practice in times of embodied distancing.

This seminar series, organised by the Performance Research Network, aims to provide a space to share our experiences and reflections on what has been lost (and perhaps, what has been found) during this difficult time.

Date/Time: 18 June 2020, 4-5pm (followed by optional social)

Venue: Remotely via zoom. Please register.

During this and subsequent seminars, we will be opening up a wider conversation about loss in research and practice, so you're welcome to share your own experiences during the discussions that follow the talks.
ln this first event, playwright Emma Whipday will be talking about her postponed play, The Defamation of Cicely Lee. The play is inspired by the true story of the maidservant Cicely Lee, who was accused of committing adultery with her master, and made a counter-accusation of rape.

The Performance Network is supported by the HaSS Research Institutes for Creative Arts Practice, Humanities and Social Science.
