Course summary

**About This Course**Offering an exhilarating immersion in all aspects of theatre, this course combines a firm grounding in acting, directing, and practical stagecraft with the thoughtful and inventive study of plays themselves. You’ll master dramatic traditions from across time periods and all around the world, and you'll draw on that knowledge to enrich your own experience in the theatre.Throughout your degree, you'll be supported by UEA's unique combination of academic experts on theatre and performance, as well as practising theatre directors and world-leading scriptwriters. Once you graduate, your degree will open the doors of the theatre world to you – or you might choose to take all the skills you've learnt to any number of careers across the creative industries and beyond.**Overview**Our professionally equipped 200-seat Drama Studio will be at the centre of your Drama degree at UEA. You'll have the keys to this amazing space, giving you the chance to control everything in your own productions, from performance and staging to costume, lighting and sound-design.But your Drama degree doesn't only offer a practical training ground. At UEA, you’ll always be reading plays, performing them, and writing about them (and, sometimes, writing them too). These activities enrich one another. Studying drama lets you become a better performer or director, and knowing the ins-and-outs of stagecraft makes you a better writer about plays.At UEA, you’ll encounter an astonishing array of drama and a wealth of performance styles, from naturalism to non-Western traditions. You’ll engage with major theoretical and directorial approaches, from Aristotle to Artaud, from Stanislavsky to physical theatre. And you might examine the use of theatre and performance – by the State, by oppositional groups, by political activists and by theatre and performance practitioners – to solidify or challenge structures of power.Everything you discover will deepen your practical work in the theatre. As you get inside the words of plays in the seminar room, you'll become better able to release their energies in your own performance. Each year, you will bring everything that you’ve learned together in a major practical project, and will undertaking a wide variety of applied drama work. You’ll also have the chance to study on placement with a professional company or venue (which may include TV, radio and film, as well as theatre). This will build not only your experience and confidence, but also your contacts book.You'll also benefit from our highly regarded student-run Minotaur Theatre Company, which gives you the chance to gain valuable additional performance, technical and scriptwriting experience.**Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
