University of Roehampton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This Theatre Practices and Production degree encourages curiosity and creativity, helping you express your ideas in writing, speech and performance. As well as learning about theatre history and performance, you will perform, critically analyse plays, performances and audiences, and have direct contact with drama and theatre professionals. The course includes regular field trips to institutions such as Battersea Arts Centre, the National Theatre, and the Southbank Centre, and free theatre tickets for some of London’s best shows.
If you have come from a vocational or industry related education background (e.g. BTEC Performing Arts), this programme is designed with you in mind. This course will build on the capabilities, expectations and ambitions that these more vocational qualifications provide.
Join us and you will study an ambitious, challenging and exciting BA programme that draws on the best that our University has to offer. Practices and production focuses on enabling you to develop critical, practical, creative and well-informed responses to a range of professional contexts; while supporting the development of confidence in writing and other skills that are essential not only to professional life but full participation in contemporary citizenship.
You will focus on both performing and performance-making, but will also gain other skills and explore professional contexts that make up the diversity of contemporary drama and performance-related careers. You will learn include the conceptual, problem-solving and collaborative skills associated with cultural enterprise and arts management; the very particular challenges of self-organisation and engagement with others that belong to applied theatre work; as well as training in critical thinking, independent project work, group theatrical production for public performance, and work experience opportunities.
Your first year is about building confidence in written, spoken and public presentation, and broadening your knowledge. You will be making your own performances as well as learning about performance history and culture. A particular feature of the first year is a year-long module on London's Arts, including hands-on involvement with the city's incomparable range of activities and resources.
As well as being involved in devising a full-length theatre production, in your second year you will take a special module on Arts Management, which will give you a wide-ranging introduction to how theatre companies and other arts organisations are run, from budget management to marketing and audience development. In addition you can select from a wide variety of modules. Current examples include Music, Theatre and Performance, Design and Scenography and Contemporary British Drama.
In the third year the focus turns towards more independent work, including an Independent Project module, where you will develop a project appropriate to your future career ambitions. Working with our team of expert staff, you will also continue to explore our range of innovative and engaging modules which presently include Drama of the 60’s Counter-culture, Shakespeare and Contemporary Performance and Playwriting.
