Course content

The MA Theatre Practice: Performance and Scenography at Aberystwyth University is aimed at students who intend to pursue creative practice in performance and scenography in order to become professional artists and/or practice-based researchers.

  • Housed in its own dedicated building and led by internationally recognised practitioners, this MA enables personal and professional development through the sustained exercise of creative practice in performance and scenography.
  • Within Aberystwyth’s historic Assembly Rooms, you will have the opportunity to work daily in studios and workshops as a community (or ‘Assembly’) of experimental, developing artists, specialising in diverse aspects of contemporary performance practice, from scenography, design and installation, to acting, writing and directing.
  • Whilst supporting personal pathways, the teaching will foster such specialisms by encouraging them to intersect and intertwine, forming a cultural environment of collaboration and exchange, in order to strengthen the creativity of the individual, and the individuality of their creativity.
