This course invites you to explore performance from a variety of angles, encompassing dance, drama and interactive performance, not just as separate subjects but allowing you to work at the intersection of these 3 areas. As your studies progress, you will be able to define your own specialism whilst adding a body of supplementary and supporting knowledge areas in order to make you a well-rounded and multidisciplinary performer. Teaching takes place at the Kingsway Buildings.
