Overview

This practice-based course offers workshops designed to encourage students to evolve as writers in new and individual ways and approaches writing in relation to wider literary and cultural contexts. Drama compliments this by exploring theories and practical approaches in relation to performance which allow students to develop their creative ideas through practice in industry or community contexts.

The Drama elements have a contemporary focus but review the histories and traditions of theatre and performance, and interrogate what is meant by these in the twenty-first century. Throughout the programme, students continually develop their critical thinking to inform theatre-making skills and explore the extent to which drama is a tool for social change.

In Year 1, students gain insights into the history of drama, the context in which dramatic production has taken place, how to make theatre, the political underpinning of texts and practices, and the ways in which texts and performances are viewed and interpreted.

In Year 2, students study more specific modules looking at different genres and extend their practical and critical skills.

In Year 3, students look increasingly at the relationships between writing and the world beyond the University such as publishing, producing, community audiences, writing and teaching.
