Professional development is at the heart of this course and you will have the opportunity to develop as a dramatic theatre artist in a truly creative and collaborative way. This course will provide you with the opportunity to apply your experience in the studios and in a diverse range of performance arenas. In year one you will develop performance and theatre skills in a supported forum. In year two you will develop industry practices further, building on your previous experiences and exploring your own lines of enquiry to help develop you as a performing arts practitioner. Through engagement with industry professionals you will experience and gain first-hand knowledge and understanding to enhance your studies.
Through practical classes you will develop a wide range of performance techniques that are drawn from world-renowned practitioners and theorists enabling you to become a versatile practitioner. You will use this knowledge to truly understand the role of the performer and the relationship between you and the audience and the material being presented. The course is designed to give you the necessary skills to become proactive about your own career progression, building the confidence and ability to plan and deliver workshops, direct your own performances and build a solid understanding of how the industry works. Underpinning the practical aspects of the course is the exploration of theoretical concepts of performance and its creation and presentation. You will perform in two full scale productions a year that will see you apply techniques and develop your stagecraft. You will be expected to work with fellow students in a supportive and creative manner, often working with the director to develop performance work and your own understanding of how you make theatre works and take them from the page to the stage.
A variety of teaching and learning methods are used to encourage and facilitate your creative and artistic development and bring together practice and theory. Independent and collaborative learning will be encouraged through use of practical workshops, interactive lectures, resource-based learning, individual and group work, tutorials, discussion, critiques, performances, and rehearsals. You’ll also get to experience guest lectures from industry professionals and take part in workshops with top companies.
