Rose Bruford College of Theatre & Performance

Course Introduction

The Devised Theatre and Performance course (DTAP) prepares you for the challenging task of creating your own work. You will enhance your physical, emotional, imaginative and cognitive playfulness in order to be well equipped for the demanding journey of articulating, shaping and presenting your artistic visions. You will develop a better understanding of "the physical body you have, the subtle body you are, and the collective body we all have in common". The exploration of the dynamic relationships between these different bodies will provoke your physical and emotional imagination, creative intuition and personal playfulness, initiating awareness of what we call the Poetic Body. Awareness of this body lies at the very centre of LISPA's DTAP Course pedagogy, since accessing it is essential for the creation of new performance languages.

Please note that his programme is run in collaboration with London International School of the Performing Arts and the teaching takes place at LISPA's campus in Berlin.
