Adrian Howells is a performance artist with an interest in creating work that promotes intimacy and genuine exchange with an audience, often in a one-to-one, autobiographical or confessional context, in a range of non-traditional performance spaces. Between 2006 and 2009, Adrian was the recipient of an AHRC Creative Fellowship in the Department of Theatre, Film and TV Studies at Glasgow University, where his practice-led research was engaged with looking at issues of intimacy and risk in the one-to-one confessional performance practice.
