Students taking the Independent Researchers’ pathway develop their knowledge and skills through a wide range of creative and theoretical options to produce a project of their own. Emphasising the link between practice and theory, this will centre on a creative initiative such as the production of a film, choreography or a lecture demonstration, and is tailor made to suit individuals. In each case students write a paper expanding on the process involved – alternatively they may focus on a purely theorist written project. Students work with guidance from a supervisor and attend group seminars. Recent independent projects have focused on choreographic practices for secondary school students; an investigation into Kurt Jooss’s Green Table and questions of authenticity, a solo work exploring Strindberg’s The Stronger and a study on Dyslexia in dance students.
