This degree explores the practice of theatre and performance in community and educational settings, for social, political and personal change.
You'll reflect on the relationship between arts and activism, particularly in the fields of politics, international relations and sociology. The department has exceptional links with industry, providing you with opportunities to engage with theatre and performance in various settings including social care, prisons and community centres working with diverse groups such as young people or refugees.
Our industry links represent some of the most innovative and influential performance practices in the world including:
Producing theatres ' the Young Vic and Theatre Royal Stratford East
Participatory organisations ' Spare Tyre Theatre and Cardboard Citizens
Arts centres ' The Albany and Ovalhouse
Touring theatre companies ' Graeae and Talawa
This course is in the spirit of Goldsmiths and reflects our identity as a radical, political, cutting'edge, international, interdisciplinary, creative and critical home of the arts and humanities in the heart of London.
You will be taught by an exemplary team of Goldsmiths artists and academics who not only teach and mentor you, but also lead their own creative projects and continue to publish their own academic work, too.
