Applying Performance: A Reflective Practice (DRAM147)

30 credits

This module is part of the Applied Theatre pathway. It will provide opportunities to develop facilitation skills, producing skills, project delivery, pedagogy and reflective skills in applied theatre practice. The focus is on building students' awareness of the appropriate application of drama tools and skills in different settings and exploring the role of the facilitator, producer, teaching or community artist. Working across partnerships, non-traditional theatre contexts, and various settings (live/digital/local/global) students will have opportunities to shadow and observe practice in applied settings, building their skills in evaluation, project proposing, activity planning, and pedagogy. By the end of the module, students will be able to reflect on their own pedagogic or producing practice within a project-based model and/or design a forward-facing model of delivery, drawing on practice and research.
