Course content

An opportunity to develop or reinvigorate yourself as an actor and create work for touring. Working in teams, you learn how to take charge of your professional journey and become self-sustaining, by creating public performances adaptable to different venues and circumstances.

This course provides a thorough one-year professional experience of working in and developing work for touring and finding audiences. We want to help you take charge of your professional life by giving you the means and the confidence, by the end of the year, to create, find an audience and present a captivating show. Along the way, you work, as a year group, to produce two performances, before, possibly, becoming a smaller company. Your acting craft skills will increase, as will the thinking needed to create shows that attract audiences.

You experiment, innovate and get to grips with contemporary approaches, including digital possibilities to extend your range of presentational skills. We want to put you together with emerging directors and practitioners. Finally, you become part of a company to find out, if what you imagined might work, actually does.
