What is ResCen?

ResCen, the Centre for Research into Creation in the Performing Arts, is a multi-disciplinary, artist–driven research centre. It is designed to be a bridge between academia and the practices of professional performing artists. Established in 1999, its base is at Middlesex University, London. ResCen is centrally concerned with the artist at work, and with the ways in which the working artist, under the usual pressures of the arts marketplace, can be enabled to:

  • reflect on her/his own creative processes;
  • document these processes;
  • make these materials, musings and critical reflections available to others;
  • participate in knowledge exchange and transfer across research disciplines, professional specialisms and in a variety of social contexts;
  • contribute to policy and strategy debates in the arts nationally and internationally.

“Emblazoned on my mind in gigantic theatre lights is the word FINISH. I must. There’s a palpable fear in my belly, and I wake up in the middle of the night sweating music.”
— Errollyn Wallen
