Naughton Greg

Senior lecturer, Department of Performing Arts, University of Winchester, UK

Greg Naughton is an actor, director and writer. As a collaborator with a Theatre in Education Company in New Zealand, he developed his approach to performance with the formation of the Sun Theatre Company (new works & street theatre) after being invited to work with the National Opera Company as a director, tutor and understudy. In the UK he founded and worked with Youth Theatre and community groups on self-representation, and with several independent film and radio production companies as a freelance producer, director and editor. In 2002, as a University of Winchester Research Fellow, he examined community applications of new media across the U.K. This led to the creation of an undergraduate programme that brought together media production and community participation. A series of public sector research, participatory and promotional projects followed while he ran the MA Theatre & Media as Development. His specialist interests are theatre and media as community development and regeneration, and the personal and political impact of dramatic forms in theatre, film and new media.
