Dr. Alice O'Grady and Rebekka Kill talk about their research into so-called "relational performances" which often happen in festivals outside of the main arena. Working with Urban Angels Circus, these performances hope to provide an insight into audience/performer relations with the intention of feeding the results back to festival organisers.

Arts & Humanities Research Council: Each year the AHRC provides approximately £100 million from the Government to support research and postgraduate study in the arts and humanities, from archaeology and English literature to design and dance. In any one year, the AHRC makes approximately 700 research awards and around 1,000 postgraduate awards. Awards are made after a rigorous peer review process, to ensure that only applications of the highest quality are funded. Arts and humanities researchers constitute nearly a quarter of all research-active staff in the higher education sector. The quality and range of research supported by this investment of public funds not only provides social and cultural benefits but also contributes to the economic success of the UK.
