TaPRA 2023 Conference – Programme announced

Theatre and Performance Research Association Annual Conference (TaPRA)

The Theatre and Performance Association Research Annual Conference 2023 will be hosted by the University of Leeds, from Wednesday 30 August to Friday 1 September 2023.

The conference will take place on the university campus, with working group sessions and keynote talks held in seminar rooms and studios at the centre of the Leeds campus. The main plenary will take place in live streaming enabled Rupert Beckett Lecture Theatre. Performances and some working group activities will make use of a variety of dedicated performance spaces. The conference dinner will be held in The Refectory, a beautiful contemporary venue at the heart of the main campus famous for its musical history. On campus, accommodation is available during the conference at their flagship residence, Storm Jameson Court.

It will be a hybrid event, facilitating participation by online delegates alongside those attending in-person. Since our conference in 2021, we have been able to experience many benefits of online conferencing, such as increased opportunity for international presenters, lower financial costs to participate, greater accessibility for those with caring responsibilities etc. The 2023 conference at Leeds aims to retain the wider opportunities for engagement that online platforms offer, whilst also creating a space for in-person engagement and social interaction

Registration closes on the 14th July 2023. Sign up here.
