Eve Katsouraki is a senior lecturer in theatre studies at the University of East London. Her main research interests concern the intersections between theories of aesthetics, political philosophy, and most particularly Jacques Rancière, Alain Badiou, Slavoj Zizek, Chantal Mouffe and Ernesto Laclau, with performance theory. Her doctorate research at the University of Edinburgh and current publications explore issues of early modernist theory in performance in relation to politics and philosophy. Her practice is interdisciplinary and includes writing and directing postdramatic theatre, filmmaking and multimedia performance, with a particular emphasis on performance installation art and interactive practices. She is currently working towards a monograph on the aesthetics and politics of early modernist performance.
Other research projects include investigating the notion of the sublime in contemporary performance theory, radical performance and theories of subjectivity, the politics of subversion and experimental performance, and the manifesto as acts of radical performance.
