BA (Hons) Theatre and Performance
This is the course for those wanting to bring their own theatrical ideas and passions to a constantly changing industry.
This is the course for the innovators and the exciters. For the rule-breakers and the experimenters.
For the players and the game-changers.
This is the course for the performance makers of the future.
The BA (Hons) Theatre and Performance course trains you to be a performance maker, introducing you to contemporary styles of theatre such as devising, comedy, and multimedia. This is not an actor training programme, but a course designed for a new generation of performers. It is designed to give you the tools to create and perform your own work, as opposed to acting in somebody else’s; it uses performance techniques and methods to make more experimental and convention-breaking theatre and performance.
Whilst studying on the programme you will be introduced to a number of performance disciplines ranging from devising, acting, and clowning to international performance, filmmaking, and prison theatre. You will watch numerous multidisciplinary performances, be visited by professional companies, and benefit from the established industry-experienced team of lecturers. Throughout your studies you will engage with techniques and methods that will ultimately result in the development and creation of your very own unique performance festival, unTaPped, which attracts audiences of industry professionals.
