Course Summary

The programme is designed to provide a flexible and bespoke programme of study, enabling you to choose from a range of modules delivered by Trinity Laban.

Key Features

  • Flexible curriculum lets you develop existing specialisms and pursue new skills, such as performance making, embodied writing or film making.
  • Choreological Practice will provide a framework and terminology for investigation and analysis of human movement.
  • Practical investigations aim to enhance observation skills and develop movement literacy.
  • The Transdisciplinary pathway offers a bespoke and supported space to challenge your assumptions, bring clarity, and articulate your values and priorities as an artist and creative practitioner.
  • An interdisciplinary approach allows development and articulation of your individual research.

Course Details

The MFA Creative Practice is a two year full time programme. It shares the first year taught programme with the MA. An extended independent project forms the second year, providing time for in-depth research and realisation of a substantial body of work.
