Program Overview

Program Description:

Our emphasis on practical as well as aesthetic training gives you the best chance of being able to create work of which you are proud, and from which you can earn a living upon graduation. Tuition is structured around practical projects in Central’s well equipped studio and performance spaces, with rigorous investigation of the design process. As you progress through the course, you will be encouraged to develop your own design style, supported by tutors, mentors and visiting professionals. To help you become one of the leading practitioners of the next generation, you are supported and encouraged to make full use of automated lighting, video, projection, LEDs and other emerging technologies in your designs. You will benefit from Central’s industry focused research culture, which ensures that what we do and what we teach is at the forefront of knowledge and industry practice in theatre, events and concert touring. Throughout the course, but especially in the third year, you will create links in your chosen area of the industry and spend some time working outside Central, to make the journey from the academic world to the professional world as smooth as possible. You are encouraged to build and maintain valuable contacts with industry professionals and recent graduates working in theatre, events and concert touring.
