The Performance and Visual Practices MA is an interdisciplinary programme that facilitates practical and theoretical research across different fields of enquiry. Working across disciplines, you will develop a practice that is both particular to you and adaptable to different professional scenarios and contexts.
Your practice may be rooted in specific histories and practices, for example music, dance, theatre, and visual or screen-based work. We understand all these practices as a means of research and investigation, and will provide you with the tools to further develop your ideas and methods through both individual and collaborative processes of enquiry.
The course has a strong theoretical component so that you understand the context in which you work and for you to be clear about your own aims and intentions. Designed to reflect a contemporary culture in a state of flux, the course promotes expanded and interdisciplinary practices as powerful tools with which to engage with the world today.
Links to a network of local and national arts agencies and venues will provide you with the opportunity to test your ideas in different spaces and with different audiences during your studies.
Normally an undergraduate degree in an arts-related subject. Applicants demonstrating equivalent skills and experience will be considered as well as those with less traditional trajectories. Seasoned artists and practitioners who want to re-examine their practice within a critically supported frame of reference are also encouraged to apply.
