Various Opportunities

Contemporary Performance Practice BA (Hons)

The BA (Hons) Contemporary Performance Practice Programme is an interdisciplinary performance-making degree focused on the generation of new and original performances that sit outside of traditional theatre.

The programme aims to develop socially engaged artists who can make a contribution in the world as performance-makers, educators, advocates and active citizens. The programme is committed to exploring the ecological and social function of performance and how performance can be an “act of community”. While studying the four-year CPP programme students encounter a range of concepts including social practice, live art, performance art, post-dramatic and post-modern performance, installation, performance research, site-specific and documentary practices. The diversity of practices means that students are equipped with multiple skills, not only in performance-making but also in facilitation, working in communities and collaboration.
