The course offers a unique curriculum – half theoretical and half practical. It offers a great opportunity for me to learn the way to incorporate theatre practice into research. The course has introduced a wide variety of contemporary performance that is totally new to me, which has broadened my interest.

I've really enjoyed having the opportunity to perform in multiple projects. There is a lot going on here and I feel like I've grown a lot both academically and on a personal level.
