The course is designed to focus on one of the most common forms of performance industry employment, but also one of the least explored in Performing Arts courses. There are very few HE organisations that teach the formation and successful implementation of a Touring Theatre Company.
This programme is a selection of primarily level 5 modules that best reflect the requirements of both employment in the professional arts industry and/or progression onto BA Hons Drama, or Drama schools. In each subject area explored, there is a balance of deep practical exploration, underpinned by academic elements of critical analysis, research and theoretical study, but the ultimate emphasis will be to form and function as an actual touring theatre company, creating bespoke pieces of theatre for different types of audience, while forming your own company identity. The aim is to allow the building blocks explored on the course to serve as a launchpad for your company’s professional development, upon completion of the course.
The modules are chosen to help prepare graduating students for the most likely destinations they choose to pursue, be that continuing their education, or finding work as a self-employed practitioner of performing arts.
The programme features specialist modules, delivered by staff with a wealth of professional experience in each subject area.
