Jonathan hops on board My Route’s free taxi tour.

Jonathan Lloyd, one of the three PHD students supporting My Route, has been assisting My Route’s project manager, Urmala, with the script for the free Taxi Tour taking place along Stratford Road 30 July – 27 August.

Find out below how and why he joined My Route as part of Birmingham University’s Reaching Out from Higher Education scheme.

I am a PhD Playwriting student within the Department of Drama and Theatre Arts at the University of Birmingham. My PhD thesis explores the possibilities of an experiential writer-led theatre. This includes research into immersive, interactive and participatory theatre experiences.

I was intrigued by the My Route project because of its interaction with diverse audiences. My involvement with the Taxi Tour has proved particularly interesting as its immersive approach directly links with my PhD research. I’m thrilled to be working with Sampad on such an exciting and original project!
