Dr Fraser Stevens BA (Hons), MA, PhD
Lecturer in Acting and Performance
Artist/Scholar and Lecturer in Acting and Performance.
I am an artist/scholar and lecturer in Acting and Performance. I obtained my BA from York University in Canada, my MA from Aberystwyth University in Wales, and my PhD from the University of Maryland in the United States.
I have produced theatre and performance work internationally and continue to make work with my company Almost Human. Along with my independent practice I have worked with practitioners and companies such as Mike Pearson, Brian MacDevitt, The 4th Line Theatre, and Radio Kootwijk Live.
My research focuses on the relationship between theatre and clandestine practices. I have published in both peer-reviewed journals and edited anthologies. I am currently working on a monograph detailing the crossover between theatre and performance, and espionage.
