Rose Bruford College of Theatre & Performance

Course Introduction

This course offers an intensive and in'depth exploration of how musical and acting processes can interrelate and feed each other. Creating work that is both music as theatre and theatre as music.

The programme’s strong ties to industry partners will be further enhanced by an exploration of place, space and community. Asking how this most inclusive of theatre forms can continue to engage audiences of all ages; developing and building on the origins of the actor'musician movement as an alternative and progressive theatre form, with a history of creating surprising and engaging live theatre experiences in all sorts of places and spaces.

Connected to London and Kent and with an international reputation, our Sidcup campus offers an ideal location to explore how actor'musicianship can continue to play a part in both international mainstream theatre and work that seeks to enrich and develop new and hard to reach audiences.
