This MA programme offers an interdisciplinary and multicultural perspective in contemporary performance practice and research. The programme is unique, guiding students to conceive, devise and deliver their creative ideas through close engagement with cutting-edge theories and practice bringing together the arts with science and ritualistic practices. It will be of particular interest to practitioners, curators and researchers interested in performance in its widest cultural sense and its application to the various strands of contemporary cultural practices. This MA will help you to develop a mature and critical understanding of a variety of creative forms and their relevant historical and cultural contexts. You will get the opportunity to create new forms and contexts for performance, theatre and dance that respond to emerging social, political and ecological issues. You will learn to write project and funding proposals and to document and archive your practice; developing a portfolio of projects to use for professional interactions with art organisations and institutions at national and international level.
Normally a First class or Upper Second Class Honours degree in a related discipline, eg: Drama, Performing Arts, Dance. Candidates with a good first degree (First or 2:1) in other subjects may also be considered.
