Text and Performance

This course challenges traditional boundaries between theatrical styles, forms, genres and roles through the formation of a company of actors, musicians and creative practitioners to explore, question and experiment with recent developments in theatre and performance. Throughout your course you will have access to flexible industry-standard performance spaces with lighting and sound equipment, a dance studio, rehearsal rooms and other external facilities: including professional theatre venues. This course is aimed at those students who wish to develop broader creative skillsets alongside a core actor training programme and offers a historical overview of and theoretical and practical grounding in European and American art movements as they impact upon contemporary theatrical practice. The creation of a broad knowledge-base will enable challenging and innovative creative practice to emerge within the context of new writing, devised theatre and the investigation of experimental forms alongside reinterpretation of existing repertoire. Graduates will have the ability to create and interpret theatrical works as performers, directors and writers; and to assess and critique artistic practice effectively; thus leading to career opportunities in theatre as well as the wider performing arts and associated industries. A degree in Theatre and Performance provides you with transferable skills that are very attractive to employers. The creative industry offers extensive opportunities in acting, performance and direction amongst other areas within the sector.
