The team includes more senior researchers with several publications in the performing arts, young researchers enrolled on doctoral and post-doctoral programmes and artist-researchers who combine research and creative practice. This diversity aims to encourage the sharing of experiences between different generations of researchers and between university researchers and artists inside and outside the university.
