Rebecca Louise Collins is currently undertaking a PhD at Aberystwyth University investigating listening, the voice and speech as theatrical modes of being. Her artistic work varies between the live and audio-based. She is driven by a curiosity of how an audience accesses and engages with a performance experimenting with structures of participation and how presence and energy alter what occurs in the “now” moment. Her work has been shown in the UK, Germany, Spain and Brussels. Her research has also been disseminated in a peer-reviewed journal.
