Misha’s performance research and practice is focused on engaging audiences and communities with the world around them through digital, located and interactive forms of storytelling. Bridging ethnographic and creative practices, her research is inter-disciplinary and sits at the intersection of anthropology, mobility studies and performance research. She collaborates with national and international organisations and communities within specific socio-cultural contexts to create new methods for sharing knowledge and learning about complex social issues through various interactive media, including games, digital artworks and live performance. This has led to the production of a number of articles and chapters published in a variety of international books, journals and project blogs on located, participatory, mobile and digital performance practices, and the potential offered by the convergence of these practices for a socially engaged practice.
