Course summary

BA World Performance is a creative and challenging course combining practical performance skills with an exploration of global performance traditions. You study theatre, dance-drama, masks, music and dance from across Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas, while simultaneously developing skills in media, writing, performing and directing.

Throughout the course you devise, research, create and perform projects reflecting the range of influences and styles encountered. This helps you to develop skills and experience that take you beyond the definition of the “professional actor” in the traditional sense.

Your future

Graduating students will be equipped as performers and could also be producers, writers or researchers because they will have add-on skills that “traditional actors” do not possess. They will also have knowledge of different cultures that will prepare them for working anywhere in the world.
