Career Summary

Biography

Originally from New Zealand, I relocated to Sydney to do undergraduate studies at the University of New South Wales and a subsequent three-year Diploma of Acting (1984). I spent many years working as a performance collaborator and performer including a decade with the Sydney-based performance group, The Cahoots Company whose creative output spanned indoor and outdoor performance works for museums, festivals, public authorities, high school audiences, and theatre spaces. My interest in dance led me to Spain where I studied Flamenco dance (1985) and upon returning to Australia I continued dance studies and performance for a further decade. My practical experience of contemporary live performance and industry practice also extends to the music industry where I worked for almost seven years developing an understanding of all aspects of the contemporary music industry. During that time I worked for six years as editor of the AustralAsian Music Industry Directory and three years (concurrently) as the editor of the Australian Sports Industry Directory. In 2003 I completed a practie-led-research Master of Creative Arts that focussed on the neutral mask and its pedagogical worth to performers and in 2007 I completed a PhD thesis about the FitzGerald Brothers' Circus, the largest circus working throughout Australasia at the close of the nineteenth century. My contribution to the emerging field of Circus Studies is demonstrated through journal articles, conference presentations, and book chapters whilst my contribution to the newly emerging field of Popular Entertainments is demonstrated in my co-editorship of the peer reviewed academic journal Popular Entertainment Studies, contribution to related conferences (both as convenor and as presenter), and the recently published book A World of Popular Entertainments (Cambridge Scholars, 2012) which I co-edited. In 2008 I received a Strategic Pilot Grant to investigate the role of children in the entertainment industry. That research trajectory has drawn me into a global network of researchers currently contributing to an edited volume for release in 2014 by Palgrave Macmillan, Children and Entertainment: the participation of youth in the entertainment industry (G. Arrighi and V. Emeljanow, eds.). A subsequent external ARC grant for the e-Research project AusStage: Gateway to the Australian Performing Arts has enabled me to develop research in the e-Humanities within a research network that extends to researchers from 18 different Australian Universities. In 2011 I was invited to join the prestigious Emerging Research Leaders Programme at UoN (2011-2012). My  current publishing project is the book, Shaping Nationhood, concerning circus in Australasia in the late-nineteenth century, for  release in March 2014.

Research expertise

Circus Studies; Popular Entertainment Studies (Victorian and Edwardian eras, particularly in Australia and New Zealand); Childhood Studies.

Whilst much of my work is grounded in archival research it also extends to the cultural and political contexts for the cultural productions at the centre of my investigations. This research interest led to my PhD thesis concerning the largest circus working in Australia and New Zealand during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, from which subsequent research into the use of animals in performance, and into the contribution of children to the entertainment industry has since developed.

Role play and simulation education in interdisciplinary education contexts; improvisation and play as pedagogical paradigms for creative production; masks as a pedagogical paradigm for the gestural and physical training of performers.

Collaboration

My collaborative research interests span performance history and historiography (Circus studies, Childhood studies, Popular Entertainments); the application of performance within interdisciplinary contexts; and e-research.

Performance histories: A research initiative into the contribution of children to the transnational entertainment industries of the UK and Australasia was commenced in late-2008 with Emeritus Professor Victor Emeljanow and is ongoing.

Applied performance: Two UoN Teaching and Learning Research Project Grants (2012, $10,000 and 2013 $10,000) are funding creative practice-led research into role-play simulation and professional communication with an interdisciplinary team of researchers drawn from Creative and Performing Arts, Pharmacy, Nursing and Midwifery, Communications, Occupational Therapy, and Physiotherapy.

E-Research: AusStage: Gateway to the Australian Performing Arts. During the current ARC LIEF-funded phase four, researchers in Creative and Performing Arts at the University of Newcastle (Callaghan) are trialling visualisation and mapping outcomes for their research into live performance in the greater Hunter region (with Assoc Prof David Watt).
