This course places an emphasis on Drama and Theatre Studies as a practical, intellectual and artistic subject.
We explore the theatre process and develop our understanding of acting and design through practical workshops. These are focused around the exploration of theatrical play text and developing original devised drama.
We consider a variety of theatre practitioners’ work and often work physically within an ensemble. The ability to provide written evidence and produce analytical essays is essential.
Performance within Live productions is an essential part of the course and there are opportunities to develop your skills both on and off stage. Students can achieve marks through design or technical theatre.
There is an expectation to fully participate in the rehearsal process.
