Talia is the Publishing Director of Digital Theatre. From 1991-2015 she was Publisher for Theatre and Performance Studies at Routledge, taking the book list from a handful of titles to the market leader in the field during that time.
Believing passionately in the importance of bridging theory and practice, she has worked with practitioners, writers and scholars such as Helene Cixous, Jonathan Bate, Richard Schechner, Augusto Boal, Peggy Phelan, Adrian Noble, Tim Etchells, Rebecca Schneider, Katie Mitchell and Anne Bogart, among many others.
Her publishing was instrumental in the emergence of ‘performance studies', and she helped launch the renowned journal 'Performance Research' in the mid-1990s. In 2012 she and Robert Delamere created the Routledge Performance Archive, the world’s first multimedia online collection of curated materials for teaching theatre and performance studies.
