Subject outline

Students will engage in theatre practice and performance processes. These will involve the development of group presentations in a range of models, including group-devised performance and play script interpretation, leading to studio performance for an invited audience. This provides an introduction to foundation skills in performance, theatre production, performance-audience interactions, group-devised scripts, design and technical operation. Students will be expected to analyse and write about the elements of professional theatre productions that correspond with their own production work through theatre reviewing.
