Research statement Assumptions about devised performance as a democratic process are troubled when engaging artists with learning disabilities. Critical engagement with practices of inclusion, notions of voice and stigma, perceptions of image and autonomy intersect with and inflect dramaturgical strategies. A Place called Maze is a one hour public performance co-created with actors with disabilities, and emerging and established artists. Commissioned as Dramaturge within the Creative Team led by Director Magda Miranda, in the rigorous redrafting and shaping of over two years of performance material generated by the diverse ensemble, my practice as research questions in the project were: How might an inclusive dramaturgy intervene on the self-perception of actors with disabilities as they continually (re)negotiate roles within a shared performance writing project? How might a dramaturg be part of, yet apart from the structures of authorship within the theatre making process? How does the dramaturge enable process to reflect on who decides what meanings are valid and how that meaning is enacted within a group devised performance? Producing reflexive, discursive and embodied knowledges within mainstream theatre practice and contributing to the development of praxis and evidence in inclusive theatre, inclusive arts and inclusive conceptions of collaboration. Indicators of its impact and significance includes (documentation attached): • Curated by LaMama Theatre, Winter Exploration season 2019 • Produced by Fusion Theatre, Dandenong with funding from City of Greater Dandenong
