  Theatre and Performance - MPhil

Trinity College Dublin    School of Drama, Film and Music

Full time September Research Only, Other 1 year full-time

About the course

This taught masters focuses on theatre and performance in Irish, European, and international contexts, and is designed to strengthen the analytic, critical, and practical approaches of theatre students. The teaching occurs across lecture, seminar, and studio-based formats, unifying theory and practice, and culminates in an independent dissertation of 15,000 words. Special emphasis is placed on training in strategies of performance analysis, theatre in its Irish context, and embodied practices. The work normally takes 12 months, although students are required to be in residence only from October through the following June. Visits from practitioners and scholars supplement the teaching, and close connections with the theatre community in Dublin give students access to performances and work in development throughout the year. An optional two-night field trip to Brussels during the Kunstenfestivaldesarts in May, developed in association with the Leuven Institute for Ireland in Europe, was begun in 2019 and will be run again in 2020.
