Robert Walton

Robert Walton is a collaborative artist whose work spans theatre, installation, writing and media art. His core studio practice is as a theatre director and dramaturg. However throughout his career he has also created interdisciplinary live art works that are more difficult to categorise including correspondence projects, durational performances, events for small groups or one-to-ones, interactive encounters and work with portable media devices. His research interests include performance pedagogy, practice as research, smartphones, mobile screens, theatre and everyday life, immersion, transmediality and live art. Robert co-founded Reader Performance Group in 2001 and Fish & Game in 2005. He leads the Honours program in Theatre Practice at The Victorian College of the Arts, The University of Melbourne.
