Course summary

The course provides an intensive conservatoire-style acting training with a bias towards actors wishing to develop their skills in entrepreneurial, dramaturgical, and broader production expertise. The course will develop your entrepreneurial skills as a theatre maker. The intense nature of the programme, content and learning means the retention of skills (physical, vocal and imagination) will be enhanced. The programme consists of 16 modules studied intensively over two years which focus on five core strands of performance and performance making; character, rehearsal, body and voice, making work and skills. It is through these modules that individuals will engage with a broad range of concepts, principles, practitioners, techniques and technologies which will inform the essential creative, critical and artistic skills for Acting and Creative Performance Practice.The programme will provide a curriculum of classes in film, TV and stage acting in a range of styles. There will be a focus on the integration of voice and movement as the core aspect of the training. Drawing on a range of holistic practitioners the imaginative acting work centres on the student’s connection to their psycho-physical and psycho-vocal experience. Dance is explored technically and expressively within the curriculum alongside enrichment skills in stage combat.The blending of entrepreneurial studies and skills-based modules would be appropriate for applicants who would like to maintain an overall interest in performance but want to explore a wider creative practice than purely acting as a single subject experience.This innovative course, in terms of design and delivery, represents collaborative practice between three very different institutions – an acting conservatoire, a university renowned for excellent partnership work and an FE College recognised for excellence in the delivery of undergraduate programmes through the award of TEF Gold in 2017. The course will draw on this rich collaboration, and foster new forms of knowledge and practice and encourage innovative delivery, learning and teaching strategies.This accelerated degree course is delivered by Leicester College faculty members at The Sue Townsend Theatre in Leicester. The course is validated and awarded by DMU. The BA (Hons) Acting (Creative Performance Practice) has been designed collaboratively between Leicester College and The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts, who support and endorse the programme. The course will provide: • A curriculum of classes in film, TV and stage acting in a range of genres• Supporting classes in voice, movement, dance and stage combat• An insight into the professional requirements of working actors• Preparation for further study, professional work and audition technique• A showreel for each graduate• A fully equipped professional performance space at The Sue Townsend Theatre where the course is delivered• Academic support and resources of TEF Gold standard• Provision of student accommodation, membership of the student union, access to libraries and other resources including enrichment classes.
