Community Theatre - Cardiff Metropolitan University

The community theatre practitioner works collaboratively with particular groups and creates participatory work that responds to their circumstances and environment. On the BA Community Theatre degree you will become familiar with the application of theatre in a range of social settings. We will be working with theatre companies and practitioners who are active in the sector and have the opportunity to apply the skills students develop with a range of groups. You will learn the theories underpinning applied theatre and explore, through practice, the nature of performance and participation in specific communities. Subject specific modules will cover areas such as Interpreting Space; Performance and Identity and Radical Performance. The course benefits from a fully equipped drama studio, rehearsal space and a set construction workshop. Sessions will be a mix of practical workshops, fieldwork supervised rehearsal, individual tutorials and lectures. There are also one-to-one and group sessions with the department technician. This programme is subject to validation for September 2020 entry and the information provided may be subject to change.
