Tim Moss is the course leader for the MA Writing for Performance in the Drama Division at the University of Huddersfield. Before becoming a lecturer in H.E. in 2001, he worked as a performer, director and writer, both in his own companies and as a freelance practitioner. He has worked with IOU Productions since 1993 and now sits on their board of directors. His own practice centres on writing for live performance. His most recent publication is a chapter in Devising in Process (Mermikides and Smart, eds, London, Palgrave Macmillan 2010), which illuminates the aims, strategies and approaches of Faulty Optic Theatre of Animation through an examination of the process of making their show Dead Wedding. He is co-authoring a performance-writing book that addresses new creative and formal strategies for writing live performance texts.
