[[ABOUT MA Movement: Directing and Teaching ]] Central has a long-standing and well-recognised place for the dissemination of our actor movement disciplines within the British theatre scene. This pioneering course is the first of its kind in Europe and is aimed at performance and movement practitioners interested in movement teaching and movement directing of the actor.
Students may be actors or dancers who want to diversify their skills and knowledge, people who work with actors (a dance or Movement teacher, or a theatre director with a movement history), or practitioners (from an allied field of sport/holistic practice), who want to enhance their understanding of various practical/theoretical interfaces regarding movement in contemporary performance.
The course offers specialist, vocational teaching in the field of movement for actors, production practice for movement directors and bespoke movement placements at Central and in other professional theatre settings, such as other conservatoires or theatre, opera, or film organisations (both in Britain and internationally).
Students are given the opportunity to develop their own practice as movement specialists according to their interests in this emergent and innovative field, and will undertake potentially ground-breaking research into movement. They will be taught by tutors who are current professional practitioners in their field of movement pedagogy, movement direction and movement research.
This is through a range of methods, including work on practical projects, written assignments and teaching practice placements. In the last term students work independently to complete their specialist enquiry, arising from work undertaken during the course.
