1st — 4th July



The brink lies between disciplines, disrupting preconceptions of performance. BRINK is nine events shaped by hard questions, political positions, systemic frustrations and personal truths that led each of us to create something new.

Presented by MA/MFA Performance Practice as Research at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, BRINK is an annual festival featuring emerging works by performance practitioners from around the world. Come find your own BRINK.


MA/MFA Performance Practice as Research is designed for innovators who wish to investigate and interrogate the concepts and practices within contemporary performance. We are auteurs, interdisciplinary performers and makers, practitioner/researchers who wish to take our work to the edges of our specialism(s).

All presentations will be recorded for documentation purposes.
