All components of this course are based around practical exploration of texts or ideas. There is a focus on the theatre-making process to ensure that students understand how to create and develop their ideas for performance collaboratively and then to reflect on this process. Set texts require students to articulate how they would perform in certain roles and design for certain scenes, putting practical work at the art of the course.
