This weekly evening online class for people aged 16+ focuses on how to create and develop contemporary performance for digital platforms. Developed as a response to the Covid-19 lockdown, it enables artists to reflect on and reimagine their practice to develop performance from home.

This course provides an opportunity for people with previous drama or directing experience to work towards a public sharing of their work for a chosen digital platform. Lead by an experienced tutor, students will develop technical and creative skills through practical workshops, group discussions and one-to-one support.

This will be a challenging and creative process which requires students to work in an autonomous and collaborative way. The weekly class will be 2 hours long and participants will be expected to undertake up to 2 hours of additional independent learning on a weekly basis to develop the work.

In order to gain the most out of this course, participants should bring a concept, stimuli or work-in-progress that they wish to explore. The development of the work will be driven by the students and informed by their ideas. The tutor will mentor and support this process to realise a new piece of live performance for digital platforms.
