Project Summary

My Ph.D research, funded by the College of Humanities International Studentship, investigates how the work of dramaturgy in the Philippines is answerable to the spatial events of Shakespearean performance, and to the country's capital city, Manila, as an urban setting that shapes acts of translation and adaptation.

My research interests include new play development, translation and adaptation studies as well as the anthropology of urbanity, walking, architecture, style, space, place, site, structure and scenography in performance.
