This exciting Drama, Theatre and Performance degree offers an approach to thinking about and creating theatre and performance. With a location so close to one of the most well-known and respected performance cities, staff that are passionate about, and experts in their field, and a curriculum of exciting and varied modules, you are sure to develop your love and knowledge of performance at Roehampton. Through performance studies of both historical and contemporary practices, you will develop creative, practical and critical skills. This course gives you the opportunity to put your ideas into practice through regular opportunities to perform, create and devise work. Studying Drama, Theatre and Performance will open your eyes to a wide range of career possibilities in the cultural sector and allow you to engage with leading arts industry professionals. To enrich your learning, visits to a range of performances, exhibitions and other cultural events will be integral to your studies, with nothing extra to pay. These range from some of London’s best shows, to thought-provoking local productions. We also offer regular events, career development activities and workshop/seminar sessions by visiting artists and scholars, hosted by the Centre for Performance & Creative Exchange, the main forum for our lively research culture and the base for over 40 artists and researchers following our MA/MRes and MPhil/PhD courses. During your three years with us you will be taught by staff that are passionate about their field, and who have a diverse range of research interests. Staff on the programme were judged as conducting research that is "world-leading" and "internationally excellent" in the most recent national Research Assessment Exercise.
In your first year, you will be introduced to a wide range of performance histories and practices and will have the opportunity to devise and perform your own work. You will take the making of theatre back to its basics, exploring seminal plays and ways in which performance shapes culture, including beyond the arts. You will also have the opportunity to meet actors, writers, directors, producers, independent performance artists, arts administrators, venue managers and educators – and hear how their working lives have taken shape. The second year gives you the chance to focus your interests through a wide range of modules grouped into four themes: Critical Perspectives; Histories, Forms and Practices; Performance Laboratory, which uses the studio as a laboratory for the practical examination of performance codes; and Production, focussed on performances designed for public presentation. Current modules available include topics as diverse as stage design, digital media and the history of comedy. In year 3, you will focus in more depth on the four themes, and also undertake a research project. New modules are introduced on a regular basis and are informed by current staff research. You can expect to engage with ideas and approaches at the cutting edge of the performing arts, from animal/cyborg performance to post-colonial theatre. You will have the chance to work with established professional theatre companies on a Work Placement module, developing your career skills. Your final project will involve writing a play or a dissertation or creating a practice-as-research project that mixes genres and media – making work that you can use as springboard for your next move after graduation.
