Physical Theatre

Our BA Physical Theatre equips you with the skills and vision to work as a creator and performer in international theatre, which has in recent years become more physical, expressionistic and visual. Physical theatre draws its inspiration from popular forms and cultures (circus, street theatre etc), dance and mixed media. Many theatre companies, like Cirque du Soleil, now seek performers with advanced specialist physical skills. You acquire a wide skills base in acrobatics, mask, puppetry, clowning, aerial work and mixed media in addition to traditional acting skills.
