Course summary

You will follow your own interests to develop as a performer with expert tuition, supervision and support.

Course overview

This course promises support to realise your performance ambitions. Academically there are seminars in research methodologies, essay writing and documentation. The bulk of your time is spent on three self-initiated practical projects with expert supervision. As an option, you may audition for performance at Chester’s professional repertory theatre, Storyhouse.

Why study this course with us?

The philosophical basis of this course is a belief in artistic development through active self-discovery. You will use creative and somatic practices to allow academic thinking through the body as well as verbally. You will be encouraged to find and develop your unique professional performance identity. This may be in contemporary performance art practices or more established forms of theatre.

There is a strong commitment to interdisciplinary work, aided by the interaction you will have with Dance, Popular Music, Fine Art and Design students. The Programme Leader is both a performer and visual artist, and there is expertise in educational theatre work in the Department. You will also gain PGCert and PGDip awards in this course.
