Dr Bronwyn Tarr


Bronwyn’s research combines her passion for dance and music with her curiosity about human nature and the evolution of social behaviours. She is interested in why humans have such a longstanding love-affair with music, the nuts and bolts behind the social benefits of taking part in musical activities, and how dancing in synchrony can be a powerful social glue. Recently she has begun collaborating with dancers, dance-movement therapists and experts on loneliness to explore how dance can improve well-being.Bronwyn is a TORCH Knowledge Exchange Fellow and research affiliate at the Institute for Cognitive & Evolutionary Anthropology, University of Oxford.

Bronwyn has performed with us in PLASMA and collaborated on MOVING TOGETHER.
