This innovative programme provides advanced study and practice opportunities in the fields of new theatre making and non-traditional performance. It reflects, and is inspired by, international developments such as:

The growth of company/ensemble-based collaborative and devising processes
New relationships between directors, writers, designers and producers of theatre and performance
Intermedial and interdisciplinary performance
Verbatim and ‘reality’ theatre
Theatre and performance for diverse sites, settings and contexts
‘Festival’ theatre for international and/or global markets
Highly situated and specific community theatre companies and initiatives
You will explore and develop a specialism within specific theatre-making areas (such as acting, writing, sound design, scenography, and so on) according to your personal skill set and learning needs. Creative processes are structured to enable risk on the one hand and clear realisation of ideas on the other.

We use a range of assisted learning through tutorials, seminars, and individual and group projects, with a vibrant mix of studio work and critical and creative thinking. The programme facilitates the development of your leadership skills and ability to make informed change to the environment in which you wish to work.
