Women's Writing for Performance
Grant Holder: Professor Elaine Aston
The aims of the project are: To understand what strategies are employed by women in their writing practices and to analyse such strategies for their contestation of gender representation; To engage academic-practitioners and practitioners in the consideration of women's writing for performance; To make women's writing practices available through residential workshops, symposia, print and electronic media; A further aim of the project has been to enable younger scholars and practitioners to benefit from the contact, support and new research knowledge of a high profile feminist theatre community. The research questions have been explored through a regularly convened programme of practice-research events, undertaken in conjunction with international visits of the project leaders to archives and to practitioners. Details of each event have been archived on the website.
