Find out more about the TEF.

Develop your identity as a performance art maker and producer on a course which fosters independent and collaborative creative practice. By focusing on critical inquiry and experimentation with new methodologies, students develop new and challenging performance forms rooted in a rigorous engagement with the skills, theories and histories of theatre and other performance arts. This course’s integration of artistic development with performance and production skills prepares students to become independent practitioners and/or to work in key organisational, administrative and artistic positions across the arts.

In the first two years, students take part in a programme that seeks to develop their practice in three key areas: text/theory, body/movement, and materials/technology. In the final year students choose an area of focus, which will be developed and contextualised within independent projects. The course is tailored towards the development of an individual creative identity in the context of collaborative work, where students undertake different roles and positions to challenge their own process and ways of working. This course leads to the qualification of BA (Hons) Contemporary Performance Practice.
