Course summary

Perhaps you love going to the theatre and you have a natural ability to perform and entertain. You also have a desire to investigate and understand how performance works in all its various settings. You want to get behind the scenes to know more about what goes into making a performance successful. You might even have ideas for a script that you want to develop. We’ll look at drama, theatre and performance from every angle, investigating and analysing the subject to help you go on to be successful in your chosen field. Why Drama? * QS World University Subject Rankings 2019 (https://www.topuniversities.com/university-rankings/university-subject-rankings/2019/performing-arts) ranked the University of Huddersfield 25th in the world for 'Performing Arts'. * State-of-the-art facilities including three adaptable studios with sprung floors and state of the art multimedia projection equipment. * Dedicated rehearsal rooms. * Teaching by industry professionals and guest appearances from the likes of Professor Sir Patrick Stewart, Natalie Gavin, John Britton, Nicolás Núñez, Chloe Beale, Nicci Topping, Anna Helena McLean, and David Crowley. * Production based programme along with visits from practitioners and residencies from internationally known companies like Slung Low, IOU Productions and Northern Broadsides. * You'll investigate everything from contemporary theatre to historical performance practice. * The Drama building is a hive of activity, where rehearsals, performance, discussion and research takes place and helps you create new ideas and collaborations. Drama, Theatre and Performance have much to contribute to the way in which we understand and create the world we live in. Studying in the Drama Division at the University of Huddersfield will help you to develop both your practical and your critical skills. All of our staff have extensive experience of working in the field of performance in various contexts and work together to provide the best possible learning experience for you. We believe that a thorough understanding of the history, theory and discourse of drama, theatre and performance will enhance your practical and of course provide an integrated mix of both. We also have many contacts with many companies and practitioners who contribute to the course by giving performances, running classes, or providing placement opportunities. ~ Eric Hetzler, Subject Leader, Drama, Theatre and Performance
