The vision of this course is to create driven, diverse artists who will change the demographic of directors in this country.
The ALRA MA Directing course is an innovative new programme including an international residency and one to one industry mentorships.
From 2021 the course will run at both ALRA North and South; established centres of HE learning, creative activity and cultural development in the North West and in London. ALRA will recruit 4-6 student directors per campus from diverse backgrounds and pair them with innovative, challenging experiences that will act as catalysts for their careers as artists in the live performance industry.
As an ALRA Director, you will develop an understanding of an eclectic variety of different practices that can create and shape performance. You will have access to resources to integrate audio and film into your work. You will gain invaluable insight into the craft of the performer through working with training actors and specialist tutors on ALRA’s performance programmes, exploring body, voice and imagination.
