Term Three (T3) is seven weeks long and provides a series of opportunities for Drama students to create additional self-directed non-assessed work by producing their own performances, taking part in workshops, getting technical and practical training, working with students on other programmes within the department, taking careers and employability workshops, getting involved with staff research, and watching over 60 brand-new performances.
T3 allows participants to try out new ways of working, new roles they've not experienced before, and to create brand new work. Aside from being valuable CV-building experience, the process enables groups to work across all years, learning from each other, and getting feedback from a range of different audiences.
T3 is a no-risk fringe-style experience where Drama provides technical support, provides props, costume, sets from stock, and allows students to create scratch performances, some of which have gone on to the Juice Platform, and to be toured following graduation.
Towards the end of Term 2, Roborough Studios hosts the T3 Squash when as many directors as possible get together and potential actors sign up for auditions (or even do on-the-spot auditions).
During T3 there are also careers workshops and talks, along with the chance to submit work to (or edit) the T3 Journal, which is published online and on paper.
