What will this course cover?

On this course you will explore how the boundaries between drama and dance, performance and life, creativity and work are always shifting. These shifting boundaries mean that performing is very much a process of adaptation: from idea to stage, from voice to body, from research to practice.

You will study innovative, interpretive research methodologies such as video- based examinations and reminiscence workshops, and traditional qualitative methods such as one-to-one interviews and hermeneutics, in order to capture, record and transform narratives, adapt concepts, translate ideas into performance, and performance into ideas. You will also explore a range of performance styles, from documentary and verbatim theatre to forum theatre and devised/ physical theatre and dance.

In particular, the course provides a unique opportunity to explore creatively how the performing arts can be developed as a discipline and applied to the world at large, as a way of thinking and conceptualising business, as an educational tool, as pure artistic endeavour.

In projects led by experienced practitioners, you will use your acting, dance and devising skills to look into creative processes beyond the performing arts.

Beginning with lecturer input and increasingly moving to independent study, the course encourages you to think of the performing arts as both an autonomous art form and as something that can have a range of applications in the world.

The course will conclude with a project led by you, in which you develop either an artistic concept or use ideas explored during the course in a wider social context.

Modules

• Research Skills and Professional Contexts
• Residency and Project Development
• Investigating Creativity
• Approaches to Performance
• Professional Workshops
• Placement and Creative Challenge
• Practical Dissertation/Project
• Written Dissertation/Project
