Abstract

This paper explores the origins, development and outcomes of my 2019 Practice as Research project entitled Death, Dinner and Performance: A Study of the Efficacy of Performance to Enhance Conversations Around Death and Dying. The project brought together commensal practices and autobiographical performance strategies in the New Adelphi Theatre at the University of Salford. It was undertaken to explore the use of both to develop a performance/ participation method to encourage engagement and dialogue around the often difficult and taboo subjects of death and dying.
