ABOUT MA PERFORMANCE PRACTICES AND RESEARCH

MA/MFA Performance Practice as Research is a taught course for performance innovators who wish to investigate and interrogate the concepts and practices within contemporary performance.

Designed for the ‘auteur’, the course provides a laboratory for study and experimentation in the area of contemporary performance, mobilising both practical and conceptual work. Whether students are directors, choreographers, performers, visual artists, composers or designers, they will all be invited to engage with new forms and apply established techniques in innovative ways. The production and making of performance is seen not only as an opportunity to experiment, but also as a process through which academic research might be undertaken.

Students are part of a thriving community of postgraduate scholars and practitioners working within a school-wide framework for research and experimentation. They will be invited to interrogate, test and apply the most recent thinking and practices
within their particular fields, and be encouraged to explore, experiment and innovate by developing their own contemporary performance practice(s), while conducting research into performance and pushing the boundaries within their chosen field.
Throughout, emphasis will be placed on a reciprocal relationship between theory and practice, where one always feeds into and enlivens the other.

ASSESSMENT

This is through presentations, performances, process-work and written submissions, as well as a personal documentation project or dissertation.
