Alex Boyd has a passion for developing collaboration between embodied knowledge practitioners. He is the founder of the Embodied Research Working Group at the IFTR (International Federation for Theatre Research) and is currently developing ‘Intercultural Roots’, a new organisation operating world-wide for practitioners and scholars to attract grants for collaboration and community projects, teacher training, embodied research and to help preserve and promote indigenous and traditional embodied arts. He is a practitioner-scholar who graduated from the University of California at Davis ‘Performance Studies’ PhD programme in June 2014. His dissertation entitled 'The Sustainability of Traditional Knowledge Systems' draws on 20 years of professional practice, performance and teaching in the Chinese Taoist arts (Lishi) that he has immersed himself in under inheritors Chee Soo and Desmond Murray since 1985 until present. The central practice of his dissertation was to develop the first ever teacher training degree programme in the West that values and focuses on the learning inherent to Eastern embodied practices and to research the influence that Eastern embodied arts have had on innovations in Western theatre and acting. Between 2001 and 2011 Alex resourced over £5M UK and European funds and organised community health, arts and social inclusion projects based on Lishi. Alex is a Research Associate with the University of California at Davis and travels extensively from his base in the UK. His current embodied research explores the micro (qi) and macro (li) energy that manifests ideas into happenings and he works professionally with performers: dancers, musicians, athletes and even CEO’s. As a self-employed consultant he supports people and community groups to help establish grassroot charities (not-for-profits) and social enterprises, helping them to fundraise – 'hopeful in contributing to making the world a better place for people to live and love'.
