Performance programme

The Performance programme takes an interdisciplinary, experimental and frequently collaborative approach to performance-making. The work produced is political, free-thinking and inclusive. It encompasses, moving image, socially-engaged practice, choreography, scenography, dramaturgy and immersive technologies.

Our student body and teaching team come from a wide range of personal and professional perspectives. As a community, we are deeply committed to the idea that diverse ecologies are the most vibrant creatively and we actively celebrate difference. As a programme, we encourage creative risk-taking by cultivating a supportive and accepting environment in which unique individual and collective perspectives can develop. We believe in the potential for performance to change the society in which we all live.

The Performance programme consists of the following courses:
