Workshop facilitated by Professor Robert Mock
Roberta Mock is Professor of Performance Studies and Director of the Graduate School at the University of Plymouth, where she also convenes the Performance.Experience.Presence (P.E.P.) research group. Until 2016, she was a founding co-director of the AHRC-funded 3D3 Centre for Doctoral Training, which focuses solely on practice-led research in the digital arts, design and performance. Her theoretical, historical and practice research tends to explore gender, sexuality and the body in performance, with a particular interest in stand-up comedy and live art.

Her books include Jewish Women on Stage, Film & Television (2007) and, as editor, Performing Processes: Creating Live Performance (2000) and Walking, Writing and Performance (2009). Between 1996-2006, her practice research mainly took place within the context of a company she co-founded, Lusty Juventus Physical Theatre. Since then, she has mainly made autoethnographic solo performances and, in 2014, she produced an EU-funded LGBT community dance film, Heaven is a Place.
