Course content

Whether your passion is hip hop theatre, dance, Shakespeare or the newest approaches to interdisciplinary and intercultural performance making, you are encouraged to develop your understanding of a range of performance practices.

You will be supported to develop distinct and innovative practical work which you will present in our professionally equipped theatre spaces. You will develop your skills as both a collaborator and leader in your chosen area of practice and further your understanding of how to position yourself to take advantage of opportunities that will support your future development.

You will also be encouraged to consider how your practice engages with audiences and responds to concerns to widen access to the performing arts. Your final project, which can either be practice based or a written document, aims to be both a culmination of your studies and a vehicle for your future career as an emerging performing arts practitioner.
