Artel in Leeds, England
Bryan has been accepted into a Postgraduate Research program at the University of Leeds, under the supervision of Prof. Jonathan Pitches and Dr. Tony Gardner. His research will be primarily focused on the relevance of theater-laboratories in the 21 century. While predominantly investigated and contextualizing Russian and Eastern European models, the research will extend to theater-laboratory models the world over. The research will encompass questions of Tradition and Innovation not only in Performance Technique and Performance Development but also in Leadership and Social Structures. While the terrain is still being mapped, the proposal is a practice-led PhD which essentially entails the reconstitution of ARTEL in Leeds under the auspices of the University for Post-graduate research.
