OSUN Experimental Humanities Collaborative Network and Birkbeck Centre for Contemporary Theatre present this performance lecture by Tim Crouch

In his Fringe First Award winning recent play Truth's A Dog Must to Kennel Tim Crouch invites his audience to ‘see with their ears’ – a generous and liberating invitation that runs through Crouch’s work, from My Arm, An Oak Tree to The Author, Adler and Gibb, and Terrestrial Salvation. In Truth's A Dog Must to Kennel, Crouch makes this invitation in relation to our visually driven mediatized culture and imagination that has intensified during the pandemic, shaping how we experience and make theatre today. Crouch’s dramaturgy of imagination meditates on the transformative dynamics of theatre and engages the audience through what they see in their imaginations rather than what they see on stage. In this public performance lecture Crouch will walk us through his journey of words and works for the imagination, and share with us images, readings, and performances of his work.
