Martin Hargreaves is a dramaturg, writer, and performer and his interests vacillate between boredom and hysteria. His research areas are on the recent histories of contemporary dance, queer practices and camp misunderstandings. He has been a visiting lecturer at Stockholm University of the Arts since 2013 and a member of their Artistic Research Advisory Board since 2019. Martin started teaching at London Contemporary Dance School in 2016 and began his current role as the Director of Research and Postgraduate Programmes last year. In 2003 he was awarded a PhD for his thesis ‘Performativity, Spectrality, Hysteria’ and much of his subsequent practice has loitered around these lenses. From 2003 to 2013 he was the Editor of Dance Theatre Journal and from 2015 to 2017 was Guest Dramaturg in Residence at South East Dance. Martin is a Trustee of Dance Art Foundation and Siobhan Davies Studios. Recently he’s performed for Boris Charmatz, Joan Jonas and Pablo Bronstein, co-edited a monograph of Kira O’Reilly’s work and worked as a dramaturg for Joe Moran, H2DANCE, Marikiscrycrycry, Nicola Conibere and Samir Kennedy.
