The Performance Arts strand is directed at aspiring creative practitioners who want to develop new and challenging performance forms, rooted in a rigorous engagement with the skills, theories, and histories of theatre and other performance arts. The curriculum’s integration of artistic development with curatorial and production skills prepares students to become independent practitioners, who are also enabled in working in key organizational, administrative and artistic positions across the arts. In the first two years, students take part in a highly guided programme that seeks to aid them in the development of their practice in three key areas: text/theory, body/movement, and materials/technology. In the final year students choose an area of focus, which will be developed and contextualized within negotiated independent projects. The strand is tailored towards the development of an individual creative identity, in the context of collaborative work where students will undertake different roles and positions to challenge their own process and ways of working.
