Research and Performance (DRA1012)

30 credits

Research and Performance is an exciting practice-led module that asks you to engage critically, creatively and thoughtfully with a particular area of research. The year cohort is divided into individual tutor groups. Each tutor will offer a different area of practice led research to their group. This could be anything from Dance Theatre to Theatre for Social Change to Voice Theatre. The different areas of research will depend on the teaching team.

Throughout the term, you will explore, experiment, and learn about your particular field of practice and research. You will respond to creative tasks and set challenges outlined by the convener. You will develop, create, rehearse and share your practical work. You may have the chance to consider other roles in this process, such as creative writing, directing, sound and digital design. You will participate in discussion-based seminars and feedback sessions throughout.

Following your completion of the module, you will critically reflect on your feedback, research and processes of creating new work in this field of theatre making.
