Andrew Quick is Director of LICA. Andrew studied English and Philosophy at Newcastle University and trained as a theatre director at the Sherman Theatre in Cardiff in 1984. Having worked professionally in making and touring experimental performance, he returned to academic study in 1989, completing a PhD investigating the histories and languages of contemporary British experimental performance at Bristol University. He has been teaching at Lancaster since 1991, where he runs undergraduate courses on Avant-Garde Theatre and Contemporary Experimental Performance as well as teaching on practical units.
Andrew is also a founder member of imitating the dog,
an Arts Council funded performance company that tours nationally and
internationally. His academic work is closely bound up with contemporary
art practices and much of his writing on performance, photography and
installation investigates concepts of space, play, documentation,
scenography and performance ethics.
