Many PhD students experience moments of doubt, irritation or even despair in their PhD. This performance dealt with the main challenges in communicating and collaborating with your PhD colleagues, daily supervisor and professor. Following Anna on her way the audience gained insight and direct experience how not to make the same mistakes as Anna, but do it differently. We’ve played this performance for a group of 30 PhD students from research school WASS, at the Open Air Museum in Arnhem. The students jumped in enthusiastically and tried out different new ideas.
