Our partnership with UCL enables us to explore the future of the art form, experiment with new technologies and re-imagine some of our working practices.
We collaborate with a variety of departments from computer science, engineering and architecture to digital humanities, fine art and BASc, exchanging knowledge between academics and industry and developing practice-based research around some of the real world challenges that we face.
The partnership encompasses research projects, student placements and joint public engagement activities, with UCL experts contributing to ENO production programmes, public talks and nourishing ENO creative teams.
UCL students of all disciplines are offered access to ENO through visits to props and costume making facilities as well as to the rehearsal room, providing stimuli for research and broadening cultural horizons. Our series of salon discussions and talks open up the creative process and ideas behind our productions to nourish cross discipline thinking. We support student placements in our artistic and technical departments.
