Course summary

Course overview

MA Performance Design and Practice explores performance making, design and time-based work. It promotes hybrid practices, critically exploring the conventional boundaries between fine art performance and theatre. The course encourages criticality and restlessness, alongside an exploration of new forms of practice.

The course will support you to become an independent practitioner in the fields of experimental theatre, live art and dramaturgy through design. You will create theatre which acknowledges the expanding and contested field of performance. You will interrogate conventions and traditional roles, such as that of the writer, designer, director and performer.

MA Performance Design and Practice focuses on the sector of performance culture where ideas and orthodoxies are in flux. The course brings fine artists, directors, writers, researchers and designers together to establish the future of performance practice. In addition, the postgraduate community at Central Saint Martins is diverse and covers a range of subjects. Within this environment, there are opportunities for collision and collaboration across disciplines.

Careers

MA Performance: Design and Practice prepares you particularly for independent professional practice. Many of our graduates form their own creative companies and partnerships. MA Performance: Design and Practice graduates have gone on to work in art, design and performance in a range of roles, producing and presenting work in many creative contexts including festivals, art centres and venues around the world.

MA Performance: Design and Practice students leave with a specialist individual understanding of performance practice from a chosen perspective. The experience you gain on the postgraduate course enables you to progress to professional practice, working, for example, in theatre, television, film, opera or dance. Some students go on to direct, write or produce. Others progress to research degree study. MA Performance: Design and Practice supports its graduates via a company that offers initial professional experience and publicity.
