Research in this area is based in the Research Centre for Performance Practices (ReCePP), an interdisciplinary centre formed in 2018 that includes all members of Drama and Performing Arts as well as selected staff and postgraduate researchers based in Music and Music Technology.
The centre coordinates individual and collective research activities and organises public seminars, performances, workshops, and exhibitions involving staff, PGRs, and guests. ReCePP places Practice as Research at the centre of its interdisciplinary critical and creative work. Its major ongoing projects include three open access journals linked to three distinct strands of field-leading research and is strongly connected both nationally and internationally:
Journal of Performance Magic, linked to the Magic Research Group
Journal of Performance and Mindfulness, linked to the Mindfulness and Performance Project
Journal of Embodied Research, arising from work on audiovisual Practice as Research methods and developed alongside Embodied Research Working Group, which co-convenes within the International Federation for Theatre Research.
