Research-based theatre looks at creative ways to theatricalize data while critically reflecting on ethical and aesthetic considerations. This approach to research gathers different partners to examine embodied ways of generating and disseminating data. As a form of knowledge translation, research-based theatre allows participants and audiences to witness research findings through performance.

Dr. Kendrick’s research focuses on literacy and multimodality as social practice, family and community literacy, literacy and international development, and digital literacies.
