Course Introduction

This innovative MA programme combines a range of diverse approaches to making performance, drawing on devising, physical theatre, directing, socially engaged practice, solo work and live art. It is offered through a low residency model that makes it unique in the country, and particularly attractive if you wish to further your studies and enhance your career opportunities but cannot commit to a traditional full'time offering. The course entails: intensive practical modules, masterclasses and workshops led by industry professionals and delivered during residency weeks, when all the cohort comes together as a community; theoretical and critical e'learning and blended learning modules that run throughout the year, and which can be completed at a time to suit your particular needs.
