Biography

Kristin Hunt is an assistant professor of theatre in the School of Film, Dance and Theatre. She earned her master's and doctoral degrees in theatre research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. As an interdisciplinary theatre researcher/practitioner, her research interests include the adaptation of ancient and classical performance modes in contemporary contexts, performance as activism, food in/as performance, and performance-based pedagogy. Her pedagogical practice focuses on applied theatre, theatre in education, theatre for social justice, and experimental performance. Her monography, Alimentary Performances: Mimesis, Theatricality, and Cuisine, was published by Routledge in 2018. Her co-authored book, Drama and Education: Performance Methodologies for Teaching and Learning, was published by Routledge in 2015. Her articles have appeared in Performance Research, Youth Theatre Journal, Theatre Topics, and Restoration and Eighteenth Century Theatre Research, and multiple anthologies. Her current scholarly and artistic practice explores mimesis in cuisine, and includes the adaptation of classical works into culinary events. Her translations and adaptations of Georg Buchners Woyzeck and August Strindbergs Miss Julie, originally produced in Madison, WI and Chicago, IL, were featured at the 2015 Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Spaces Makers session focused on food and performance. She is also a director, and created an edible production of Titus Andronicus on the Film, Dance and Theatre Mainstage in 2015 as well as an adaptation of Ajax in 2018.
