The Premodern Performance Cultures Network (formally the Early English Drama and Performance Network) seeks to bring together researchers, students, and practitioners working on all aspects of medieval and early modern performance in the broadest possible terms.

Whether discussing Royal entries or Republican opera, Passion plays or puppetry, tournaments or Ta’zia, Premodern Performance Cultures provides a lively and engaging forum for sharing the latest research in all aspects of drama, theatre, performance, ceremony, and play.

International in scope and outlook, the Network encourages cross-disciplinary, cross-period dialogue, taking in performance cultures across the entire premodern world. The Network acts as a central hub for the global community of scholars and students of premodern performance.
