Pearson/Brookes represents the recent and on-going collaboration between Mike Brookes and Mike Pearson; their collective proposals and theories; and the performance works they produce.

As individuals their work has both encompassed and engaged an array of media and disciplines, within the development of an innovative artistic and performance practice spanning decades. They met in Cardiff, and first worked together, on Brith Gof's 'Gododdin' in 1988.

Their current work is dedicated to the pursuit of experimental strategies and practice in the form, function and placement of performance; an attempt to bring contemporary sensibilities and technologies to the past as a form of cultural stimulation which values memory, opinion, speculation; and to create work that is both conceptual

Mike Pearson and Mike Brookes are currently developing innovative forms of participatory performance, responsive to changed political circumstances. Forms that problematise notions of 'character' and 'plot' the means by which dramatic material is generated and exhibited, and pose important questions about the nature of theatrical representation. Their practice constitutes performance as social enquiry and action rather than simple artistic reflection.
