The course is centred on producing creative and high-quality performance work in a number of contexts that relate to the performing arts industry. The primary mode of assessment on this course is practical performance work and the main productions in each year take place in our 344 seat professional theatre. A range of performance styles and significant practitioners in contemporary and modern performance will be explored in both theory and practice, providing students with a wealth of ideas and approaches to draw upon in the creation and staging of their own work. After initial grounding in the core techniques of acting, dance and singing in the first year of study, there is greater flexibility with optional modules in the second year. These modules include classical theatre acting, advanced dance techniques and digital/video work. There is also an optional creative project module that allows students to focus on and further develop an area of interest, for example, directing, acting, choreography, arts administration or teaching.
Modules may include: Performance Practitioners, Performance Project, Contemporary Performance, Acting Techniques, Dance Techniques, Voice Techniques, Devising Performance, Contemporary Performance in Practice, Performance For Screen, Performing Arts in Education, Classical theatre, Advanced Dance Techniques, Creative Project. Please note: these modules are subject to change.
Assessment on the foundation degree will be varied to allow for students to engage with a wide range of possibly assessment methods. This will include reports, essays, exams, presentations, performances, shows, recitals, blogs, personal reflections.
