OVERVIEW

Dominic is an academic, playwright, director and producer. He is currently a Reader in Theatre and Performance and Postgraduate Research Leader at the University of East London. His research is practice based and focuses on art form innovation and the development of diverse artists and audiences for the arts to address the historic and current lack of inclusion, representation and access.

His work contests the position of minority or marginalised practice within the mainstream with a special reference to British Asian Theatre and he has published widely on this topic including a monograph (2010) British Asian Theatre – Dramaturgy, Process and Performance with Palgrave and is co-convenor of TAPRA's Asian Performance and Diaspora group. Dominic originally trained as an actor at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and worked professionally in theatre, film, television and radio for over ten years.

Dominic is currently co-artistic director of  Brolly Productions, a BME led performance company that creates and curates original projects across art forms for new and diverse audiences; many of whom are first time arts attenders.
