Course Overview

UWTSD as a ‘creative hub’ in and around initiatives linked to the Yr Egin development.

The Programme provides students with the opportunity to develop and demonstrate advanced knowledge and understanding of, and practical experience, in:

  • the demands and expectations of the theatre director working in the contemporary theatrical context;
  • the director’s comprehension and application of techniques and methods for script rehearsal and performance;
  • aspects of the modernist movement in relation to drama and theatre through the work of selected European dramatists;
  • developing and staging both a Main House production as an assistant director and ‘studio’ theatre show as the main director.

Students on the programme will work with core staff, professional directors and other theatre professionals and with cohorts of performing arts undergraduate students to produce work of professional quality.

Assessment

A mixture of Portfolio, Presentations and Director’s reports. There are practical and written assessments for each module.
