I worked as a theatre pedagogue, practitioner, scholar, senior academic, and HE manager throughout my professional career within the UK national and the international context. My main areas of expertise are within contemporary performance, film and theatre practices: directors' theatre, performance adaptation, collective and group collaborations, multi-media and global and international performance, and cultural practices. So far, I have published widely in these fields, particularly on the works of Robert Lepage, on whose theatre and films I am a leading international scholar.
