Course summary

Overview

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.

The course is delivered in partnership with the Lyric Hammersmith, where you'll take part in a low-residency intensive program of work at their impressive facilities.

The course is offered through intense residency modules that make 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:

  • theoretical and critical learning modules that run throughout the year
  • intensive practical modules, masterclasses and workshops led by industry professionals and delivered during residency weeks, when all the cohort comes together as a community.

Employability

You'll have the opportunity to develop your practice in a rich environment of practices and discourses, in an environment that exposes you to diverse feedback sources, and a genuine immersion in professional practice of an international standing.

You'll be presented with opportunities to develop skills not only in the areas of directing, socially engaged arts and so on, but also in your professional practice, including current areas such as creative methodologies, copyright, use of multi-platform content, and resilience in the creative industries market.

Teaching and learning

The low residency MA in Contemporary Performance Making is following the model based on the Visitors and Residents theory by David White (2015), which describes a continuum of modes of online engagement and learning. This has proven to be a useful way towards understanding individuals’ motivations when they use the web in differing contexts. We are proposing that no mode of engagement is better than another, so we offer a blended approach that includes intensive face to face residencies, alongside online meetings and content delivery. We want to acknowledge that in today’s fast-changing world it is important to employ different modes of learning that allow for flexibility and can support individual learners’ context, circumstances and preferences.
