Bachelor of Performing Arts
This course caters for emerging needs of the performance and related industries. Within the current landscape there is a need for training which builds skills to work across the diversity of art forms, encouraging students to think as an actor, writer, designer, director, manager and producer simultaneously.
The course explores original, self-devised and collaborative approaches to researching, creating, producing and presenting contemporary arts practice. It focuses on all aspects of performance in a broader context rather than specialised training in the performance of theatre, dance or music. It seeks to unlock limitations and look at the ever-evolving nature of contemporary practice and in particular new forms of presentation and production.
The course provides students with coherent knowledge of the performing arts underpinned by core performance and management skills necessary to gain professional employment as a contemporary arts practitioner. It combines theory and technical knowledge with the opportunity for students to focus on a particular discipline or area of practice in the third year.
Students will learn to develop independent thinking, with practical elements providing opportunities for self-directed learning and work individually and as part of a cohesive team.
Students can select their major from one of the following disciplines:
- Practice Transition
- Performance Making
Performance Maker, Performer, Playwright, Director, Facilitator, Dramaturge
This course is available for on-campus study by students with an International student visa.
