About Dr Oliver Bray

Oliver joined Leeds Beckett University in 2006, has been the Head of Performing Arts since 2014 and is now the Director of Arts in the Leeds School of Arts.

Oliver’s well-respected performance and live art practice has toured nationally and internationally to venues and festivals including Sibiu International Theatre Festival, Romania; In between Time, Bristol; and the National Review of Live Art, Glasgow. His performance work seeks always to be genuinely innovative and edgy, while remaining unapologetically inclusive, eminently watchable and often quite a bit funny.

Current Teaching

PhD supervision.

Research Interests

Oliver’s current research interests stem from his professional practice in contemporary performance and live art but are inherently interdisciplinary in nature. As a theatre maker and practice-led researcher, his current interests include methodologies of restriction and constraint, speech-making, the art of rhetoric and the performance potential of ’pataphysical post-truth in the 21st century.
