QMUL Drama Department is ranked the UK’s top Performing Arts department.  The quality of research undertaken at UK universities is assessed by the regular Research Excellence Framework process, conducted by HEFCE and taking into account the research environment and the quality and impact of research produced.  The maximum four outputs of Paul Heritage’s practice-based research projects with PPP were submitted for assessment in the REF 2014: Heritage’s research was also selected as a case study in QMUL’s submission.  (In 2008’s Research Assessment Exercise, QMUL Drama had been ranked the UK’s top drama research department, with Heritage again submitting the maximum number of outputs.)

In 2014, Paul Heritage accompanied and supported Simon McBurney’s research trips to the Amazon and Xingu regions to meet Brazilian indigenous people as part of the development of the international smash hit ‘The Encounter’.  The trips, and a further meeting between Takuma Kuikuro and Simon McBurney in London, were documented in Complicite’s video diaries, interviews and blogs:
