Dr Edinborough's research applies somatic paradigms of experience and cognition to the study of performance and performance training. This research is informed by his study of movement and his work as a teacher of the Feldenkrais Method.

Recently, Dr Edinborough's creative practice has been presented at New York University, Hull Truck Theatre, the Ferens Art Gallery, Resonance 104.4 FM, the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Cardiff Metropolitan University, the Being Human Festival, and in two of Hull’s Edwardian swimming pools.
