ABOUT THE COURSE
This MA programme offers an interdisciplinary and multicultural perspective in contemporary performance practice and research. The programme is unique, guiding students to conceive, devise and deliver their creative ideas through close engagement with cutting-edge theories and practice bringing together the arts with science and ritualistic practices. It will be of particular interest to practitioners, curators and researchers interested in performance in its widest cultural sense and its application to the various strands of contemporary cultural practices.
This MA will help you to develop a mature and critical understanding of a variety of creative forms and their relevant historical and cultural contexts. You will get the opportunity to create new forms and contexts for performance, theatre and dance that respond to emerging social, political and ecological issues. You will learn to write project and funding proposals and to document and archive your practice; developing a portfolio of projects to use for professional interactions with art organisations and institutions at national and international level.
This MA is designed to support practicing or emerging practitioners in the development of critical, technical and management skills and strategies for forging independent and self-motivated careers. The programme is aimed to lead to a variety of employment outcomes across the arts industry and beyond. Our graduates work as practitioners, teachers and cultural leaders.
Some students will develop their own artistic style as independent artists and learn to compete with their research projects for funding offered by charities such as the Welcome Trust or public agencies such as the Arts Council England. Some will extend and refine their performance skills and will be trained for auditions with theatre and dance companies. Others will focus on developing the necessary skills to work as art programmers, curators, producers or arts administrators for museums, art centres, private art galleries and art institutes.
