Course content

This MA programme offers an interdisciplinary and multicultural perspective in both contemporary performance practice and research. The programme is unique, guiding students to conceive research, devise and deliver their creative ideas alongside cutting-edge theories and practice. It will be of particular interest to practitioners, curators and researchers interested in performance in its widest cultural sense and brings together the arts with science and ritual studies.

This MA will help you to develop a mature and critical understanding of a variety of creative forms and their relevant historical and cultural contexts. You will get the opportunity to create new forms and contexts for performance, theatre and dance that respond to emerging social, political and ecological settings. You will learn to write project and funding proposals and document and archive your practice; developing a portfolio of projects to use for professional interactions with art organisations and institutions at national and international level.
