Luis Campos is an artist, a researcher, and a lecturer. After completing his studies in Geomorphology, Luis left his native Spain and moved to New York City, where he trained as an actor at the H.B. Studio. He was a founder member of Pyrenean Latitude Theatre.
Luis has performed in Spain, US and the UK, and has taught in New York, Bilbao and London. He has directed productions in the US and UK. As a researcher, he has presented his work in performance research conferences such as TaPRA and IFTR. Luis is a convenor of the Scenography Working Group at TaPRA. He is a fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Luis is also a member of the Contemporary Performance Network and Performance and Philosophy Group.
His PhD research explored orchestrations of intermedial dramaturgy within the context of a constructivist reading of epistemology, particularly emphasising notions of epistemic subjectivity. As an artist, his practice interrogates the intersections between theatrical performance and other practical and critical modes of enquiry such as installation art, fashion and photography, particularly engaging with mediatised elements.
