This 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 singular training in acting, dance or music.
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 provides students with coherent knowledge of the performing arts. It is underpinned by core performance and management skills that are necessary to gain professional employment as a contemporary arts practitioner and to create new employment opportunities.
This course combines theoretical and technical knowledge of performance and seeks to unlock limitations through practical enquiry. It examines the ever-evolving nature of contemporary practice and new approaches to presentation and production. Students will develop critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills. Self-directed projects will develop confidence in working independently and highly collaborative group work will develop the ability to work as part of a cohesive team. The third year offers the opportunity for students to focus on a particular discipline or area of practice.
This course is Commonwealth Government Supported for eligible students.
