Throughout my professional career so far I worked as theatre pedagogue, practitioner, scholar, senior academic and manager, within the international context. I have strong education background, cultural relation and research collaboration with Brazil, Japan, Canada, Ireland and UK. 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. In particular, I am very interested in Quebec theatre, Latin American theatre and Central European theatre. 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. My new book co-edited with Professor Luiz Fernando Ramos from University of Sao Paulo 'In Process - Contemporary Brazilian Theatre' will be published by McGill Queens University Press by the end of 2014. I received ORS award and Leverhulm Fellowship for my research as well as numerous awards at numerous international theatre festivals.
