Hashtag This Girl Can: Performing Research

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance

Abstract / Description of output

Performing Research is back with a scratch night of brand new theatre created and performed by researchers at Newcastle University.

This time we are looking at three pieces of research: an investigation into the #ThisGirlCan fitness campaign; how the government has worked out that Britain is 7.2 out of 10 happy and why they might want to do this; and a look at how our eyes and ears work together by delving into the depths of our brains – don’t worry no audience participation needed for this one!

Created and performed by the researchers themselves, in collaboration with Cap-a-Pie and associates - Josh Coates and Rebecca Louise Collins - this night is completely new and has been pioneered, developed and produced in Newcastle.

We are currently working in partnership with Newcastle University’s Institute for Creative Arts Practice and Newcastle University’s Engagement Team to deliver a two year programme of work at Newcastle University. This project creates opportunities for theatre makers, academics and communities to work together.
