Conservatoire for Dance and Drama

Course Introduction

The aim of the course is to enable students with a strong background in performance to develop and explore their skills in an experimental framework. There is a strong emphasis on devised and group work, and students are taught to approach the process of developing performance from a post'Stanislavskian framework. As well as equipping the student with the skills necessary to contribute to the widest range of theatre and performance practice, it provides the framework within which the student can explore, experiment and reflect critically upon the practice of acting and performance. The course is built around 3 primary strands: acting and performance; practice and methodology; skills development and scene study.

Course Additional Entry

Graduates of completed training courses with an appropriate 1st degree or recognised diploma and practicing performers/actors with a significant professional experience (minimum 3 years) who are in need of a rigorous professional refresher and who wish to broaden the range of their skills to research, analyse, rehearse and perform.
