The focus of the group’s activity is the examination of any aspect of theatre and performance through philosophical frameworks. Ever since Aristotle’s Poetics in the West, and Natyashastra in what is now South Asia, philosophy has played a major role in relation to theatre, both in explaining the phenomena associated with theatre and in influencing theatre practice and theory. Besides examining the often overlooked historical links between philosophy and theatre in the works and plays of given…See More
Philosophy on Stage is a festival format at the edge of philosophy and arts.A main interest of of this format to do philosophy is to elaborate this precarious status of matter within the performance of an act to show that matter is not only a necessary condition to actually fulfill an act, but plays a significant role in determining the semantic meaning of it.Slogan of the last festival Philosophy On Stage #3 at House Wittgenstein in Vienna (sponsored by the Austrian Science Funds FWF TRP…See More
My primary focuses are the Philosophy of Gender, Ethics in Continental Philosophy (particularly Levinas and Heidegger), and the insights of Sensory Studies into these areas. With a background in Theatre Studies, my methodology builds upon the insights of dramaturgy on the Phenomenologists' mission. As a male researcher in the Feminist Phenomenologist's, my central questions concern the attritions and possibilities of an ethical male-involvement in feminism through philosophy and performance.
My undergraduate degree at Royal Holloway, University of London, was supplemented with an additional year spent at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. In both these institutions, the direction of my studies concerned the linkages between Theatre and Philosophy. Gender Studies - particularly feminist phenomenology, and men's (ethically conflicted) relationship to it - became my primary focus.
As a Dramaturg, I have worked in text-based theatre and dance with artists in the North East and London. My work has largely involved encouraging artists to reflect on the social and political dimensions to their work, as well as framing performance in terms of its sensory hierarchies. In collaboration with White Ribbon UK, I created the White Ribbon Cultural Campaign in 2015, encouraging theatres, galleries, film companies and arts organisations to evaluate their commitment to gender diversity across their output and structure.
I currently study on the MSc. Social Entrepreneurship programme at Roskilde University, Denmark.
