Movement Practices and Applied Performance Project*:

This core module for the MPhil Theatre and Performance will offer a consideration of movement practices in performance from scholarly and practical points of view. In both semesters the class will meet on a weekly basis to practically and theoretically explore movement forms and key texts, watch video excerpts and review recent productions that foreground the moving body. In Hilary Semester, the class will undertake a performance project, where students will get the opportunity to apply their knowledge of the body in performance and develop strategies for practice-based research.
