Program Overview

Program Description:

Focusing on critical inquiry and experimentation, you will develop your identity as performance makers and producers. This course fosters independent and collaborative creative practice and is aimed at aspiring creative practitioners who want to develop new and challenging performance forms, rooted in a rigorous engagement with the skills, theories and histories of theatre and other performance arts. The curriculum’s integration of artistic development with curatorial and production skills prepares you to become an independent practitioner, able to work in key organisational, administrative and artistic positions across the arts sector.
In the first two years, the programme focuses on development of your practice across three key areas: text/theory, body/ movement and materials/technology. The final year focuses on a specialised area of practice developed through research, professional mentorship and independent projects. The course is tailored towards the development of your creative identity through both theoretical analysis and practical experimentation. You will undertake different processes that will challenge and develop your ways of working.
The course brings together the theoretical foundations of Performance and Theatre Studies, and focuses on developing skills across creative and contextual disciplines of contemporary performance arts practices. These may include areas as diverse as critical and creative writing, live art and body-based work, site-specific performance and performance photography, as well as an engagement with visual dramaturgy and scenography. In the context of your development as a performance maker, you will be trained in the role of producer, acquiring skills in programming, marketing, finance, fundraising and administration to ensure that you are ready to create your own work and help others to produce their performances.
As a practitioner, you are encouraged to challenge assumptions about the creation, understanding and analysis of performance and to develop the future of performance, dramaturgy and curating, with an emphasis on interdisciplinarity. In this process, you will be asked to engage with work outside your immediate areas of interest in order to reassess what you expect, know and value about art and culture in general.
