Welcome to the Performing Research Network.

We are a new network for theatre makers and academic researchers. This is a space to support, collaborate and share results of partnership working between theatre makers and researchers.

The network is run by Cap-a-Pie – a Newcastle based theatre company who has been working with academic researchers at Newcastle University to co-create theatre productions and community projects since 2012. We’ll be sharing our learning from our collaborations with academic researchers on this site¬†and would love it if other artists or academics¬†would like to share anything from their projects – see submissions for more details.

If you’d like to hear about what we’ve been up to please sign up to follow this blog.


A space for sharing ideas, news, interesting articles, calls for collaborators, funding calls etc.


A space for sharing outputs from collaborations between theatre makers and researchers. This could be academic or creative outputs, project reports, evaluations or anything that sums up your project.


A space to tell other who you are and what you do! We’ll create profiles for anyone who submits something to the blog or outputs sections of the website.
