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.
