This degree course combines the theory and practice of drama. The two approaches are not merely complementary, but are indivisible in the study of drama and theatre at degree level. The main teaching modes comprise seminar discussion and practical workshop sessions, which explore play texts, theoretical writings, performance traditions and techniques, and examine the theatre’s role and function in society throughout history. European, American and non-Western theatre traditions are studied as well as British theatre. Modules in film production, and playwriting are also available. Practical work takes place primarily in the Department’s theatre and studios and all practical modules include exploration of technical theatre, lighting, sound, set and costume. Outside of scheduled teaching times our academic staff are available for face-to-face meetings, essay feedback and support sessions, and for meetings with Academic Advisees. Students benefit from our Virtual Learning Environment (employing additional learning opportunities through online quizzes, discussion boards and blogs) and library facilities, as well as other research and study environments. The Sir Robert Martin Theatre seats an audience of up to 300 and has a proscenium arch, which is easily adapted to accommodate other forms of production. The Leonard Dixon Studio and the Stanley Evernden Studio are flexible spaces seating up to 86 and 45 respectively.
Year 1: Areas studied include performance practices, acting and the classics, theatre histories and play reading. Year 2: Areas studied include production, performance philosophy, playwriting and movement. Final year: Areas studied include theatre practice, applied drama tool kit and research project.
