Performance Lab

About Performance Lab

UCL Culture presents Performance Lab, where artists, researchers and students explore how live performance can animate research – and how research can inspire art.

Experience cutting-edge research from one of the world’s leading universities, brought to life onstage through theatre, dance, music, comedy, circus, spoken word and technology.

Below are some example projects from Performance Lab:

Performing Place

  • Performing Place brought together live performance artists, Camden communities and researchers in the co-creation of live performance.
  • The initiative began in October 2019 with the commissioning of four Performing Place projects: Rhythms of Fractals & Collective Movement; The Dancing Brain; You Move Me; and Sound Voice: Voice Loss and Identity.
  • Performing Place aimed to build relationships between UCL researchers, the people of Camden and external researchers; create opportunities for knowledge exchange between artists, academics and the people of Camden; and build the skills and experience of artists, researchers, and relevant stakeholder communities by working together.

Performing Planet Activism

  • Performing Planet Activism is a strand of intimate UCL performances, workshops and interactions exploring some of the pressing environmental issues of the climate crisis.
  • Events and activities bring together UCL research, climate activism and artistic interpretation in unique ways that inspire action and create space for dialogue.
