Develop your understanding of performance from a variety of perspectives. Explore practical approaches to performance for both traditional and non-traditional stage spaces, for screen and for broadcast media. As well as gaining a practitioner perspective, you consider the role of the audience and critic towards these media. Your investigations blend a practical approach with a clear theoretical understanding. As part of the course, you apply what you have learnt through working with external clients in the applied theatre module, and have the option of a work-based learning placement in an area of your choice in your final year. We are a proud member of internationally renown theatre company Out of Joint’s Associate University Scheme, which entitles us to a number of placements and workshops for our students. We have a close relationship with local institutions, such as Sheffield Theatres, Theatre Delicatessen, and Third Angel, which provide many opportunities for you to see, and get involved with, cutting edge work. The University is currently investing in a newly equipped suite of performance spaces, rehearsal studios, creative spaces and recording facilities. Films are shown in our high-tech cinema The Void or at the Showroom Cinema, adjacent to the University. You also have access to our learning centre, holding a library of appropriate books and journals as well as thousands of films on DVD, Blu-ray and videotape, plus individual viewing facilities.
