Focusing on both contemporary performance art and history, the projects of this UGent/VUB alliance research group fit into one or more of the following research topics: (1) theatre texts and text theatricality, (2) dramaturgy, (3) (inter)mediality, and (4) performativity. These topics are investigated from the perspectives of literary studies, theatre studies, performance studies and media studies.
