Our students say that studying Contemporary Performance Practice at the Conservatoire is like nothing you could ever imagine. This programme is a four-year full-time programme leading to an honours degree. It is for aspiring performance makers who wish to develop their skills as innovative and socially engaged performers, directors, teachers, and cultural leaders, who can realise their aspirations to create and shape the future of new work. This could be the programme for you if you are passionate about creating performance, but you are unsure of what you would specifically like to do in the field. You will be able to explore realisation of your ideas through the disciplines of performance, education, installation, movement, research, and documentation. We will help you to develop your performance skills in our world-class facilities. You will push yourself and push boundaries, creating new works with image, action, sound, and text. You will leave RCS as an independent and entrepreneurial self-managing ‘eco-centric’ artist with an awareness of the aesthetic, intellectual, social, emotional, political, and ecological considerations of a holistic and sustainable arts practice.
