Contact Details


Gareth has taught in the Department since September 2007, becoming a full-time member of staff in 2012. In the same year he completed his PhD which considered Hans-Thies Lehmann's (1999, trans. 2006) notion of postdramatic theatre and its significance within a Welsh-langauge context, focusing specifically on the work of Brith Gof and their collaborators, and the performance texts of writer Aled Jones Williams.

His performance practice during the past several years has been as a member of random people.

He is currently completing a monograph on the works of Aled Jones Williams, to be published by University of Wales Press.

Since 2018, he has regularly written theatre reviews for The Guardian.
