Acting and Theatre-Making with Foundation

Course Introduction

This unique and exciting course combines comprehensive actor training with the development of dramaturgical skills in directing, writing and devising performance. It should set you on the path towards becoming a professional ‘theatre-maker’.

You will explore and experiment with a range of theory and practice, reinterpreting existing repertoire and creating original works. Working effectively as an ensemble in a respectful and supportive environment forms a key part of the training. This means selection for this course is via workshop and interview rather than conventional audition process alone.

As part of an ensemble of versatile creative practitioners, you will produce a number of works such as plays, musical theatre, dance, physical theatre, performance art and scenography.

Creative collaboration and networking are integral to the course, affording you opportunities to work with fellow students, academia and industry professionals.

The foundation year course is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to continue onto your Honours degree. You will study a range of subjects that will underpin your future study and also gain valuable experience of university life, with full access to campus facilities. Successful completion of the year allows you to progress straight onto Level 4 of this course.
