Course summary

This innovative postgraduate programme combines cutting edge contemporary performance practice with rigorous thinking. Students explore examples of contemporary performance in an atmosphere of imaginative scholarly inquiry. Students also make their own performances in response to research questions that emerge from their artistic and scholarly work.

In addition to the core modules, students engage with the professional landscape through seminars with visiting practitioners and through placements. While there is scope to develop a wide range of work, the department has particular specialisms in Arts and Health, Performance and Disability, and Performance and Conflict.

The placement is negotiable in length but must include an element of consultancy: i.e., the student must have a specific set of responsibilities and a task to be completed. This might include surveys of audience base; development of marketing or social media presence; identification of funding sources; management of a time-limited project, or other. The student will negotiate the placement with the module coordinator and the management of the arts organisation.
