Practical Essay (DRA3061)

30 credits

This module allows you to spend a term developing and delivering a performance project with a small group of like-minded peers from your year-group. This is a practical essay, so the research element is as important to the project as your performance. You will spend your time reading and practically interpreting a defined research question, building on material you might have encountered on any part of the Drama programme. You will work in small groups with shared interests, and be supervised by a member of Drama staff. Each group will identify core research questions and create a piece of researched practice for a defined performance context (these performances may take place on or off campus, and may be live or digitally mediated). This module is a jewel in the crown of the degree and a chance to realise your research in practice for an audience.
