Using oceanographer Rachel Carson’s The Edge of the Sea to contextualise tidal spaces, this paper will discuss how constantly shifting and eroding coastlines act as a site for writing, rewriting and performing acts of cultural, personal and ecological memory.

10th Ferbuary: Andy Dougan
Glasgow rejoices in the self-appointed title of Cinema City. Dr Andy Dougan’s work is the first city-level study of audience development in Glasgow. It considers disparate factors such as class, technology, gender, economic theory, and – most important – local and national regulation played their part in creating that abiding connection between a new medium and its audience.

17th February: Lewis Banks & Jay Capperauld
Composer Jay Capperauld will present a holistic outline of the writing process and inspiration behind his most recent collaboration with saxophonist and project leader, Lewis Banks, in the wake of the premiere of 'Afterlife'. Lewis Banks will also perform key excerpts from the project in a musical autopsy that aims to illuminate the intended meanings and metaphors of Afterlife.

24th February: Jesse Paul
Jesse Paul will talk about her approach to collaborative practice with performing arts students across a range of educational contexts.

Jesse Paul is the Fair Access Manager at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. She has worked as a Teaching Artist for over 30 years across the UK in a wide range of educational and community settings. Fair Access has always been the core of her work.

9th March: Bethany Whiteside
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition that affects the brain and spinal cord affecting physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. There are over 11,000 people living with MS in Scotland, making MS more common in Scotland than most other countries in the world. Orkney has been cited as having the highest prevalence worldwide. In 2019, Scottish Ballet launched a pilot programme, 'Elevate', working with dancers with MS. The research commissioned had the dual aim of exploring a) the model of best practice being developed by the Company and b) the impact of participating, as reported by the dancers, with an especial focus on gait, balance, and fatigue - key symptoms of MS. Mixed methods, including validated measures, interviews, and observations were employed to explore the impact of this ten week pilot programme. In contrast to the burgeoning literature on Dance for Parkinson's, which is increasingly dancer and dance centred in approach, Dance for MS research (and programmes) are extremely limited, making for a timely and important study.

16th March: Doctoral Students' Showcase
Join students from the PhD and DPerf community for a showcase of their current research, projects, collaborations and more.

Additional Dates: 24 February 2020, 09 March 2020, 16 March 2020
