Study the performing arts while nurturing your artistic individuality. You will learn more about your current artistic interests as you draw from a range of disciplines as inspiration for your project work. Your passion might be to develop your skills in creative text writing, dance, acting or directing. You will use project work to explore your particular area of interest and you will enhance your practical performance skills through weekly technique classes and creative workshops, also developing confidence in your ability to create performance work. You will study a range of practical modules that develop your knowledge in many different performance areas, from creating work specifically for festivals, to the role of art in society and the realities of applying for funding. You will undertake a professional placement during your second year, and your third-year project work will be showcased in front of professional artists and producers at the University's annual Lift Off festival.
