Course Summary

Course overview

Our experienced tutors and guest artists will encourage and equip you to create performances for festivals, city centre venues, site-specific projects and the touring studio. You will develop strategies to reflect, theorise and document your practice and be given a platform to share your thinking.

With a fluid interrelationship between theory and practice, you will have the opportunity to take full advantage of the workshop, studio, seminar and virtual environments the University has to offer. We will encourage you to engage in collaborative practice with others and consider the implications of working in particular contexts or in response to specific commissions. This course offers great opportunities for cross-disciplinary work, allowing you to engage with other students on the Applied Theatre, Music and Fine Arts programmes. Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip awards in this course.
