Program description

Theatre and Performance

This course is underpinned by intensive practical and collaborative work. You’ll explore every aspect of the creative process, from devising individual performances to directing and producing work with others. As a reflective practitioner, you’ll test the theories you learn in lectures through your own work, research and performances.

You will:

  • Benefit from AMATA’s year-round performance program, which attracts top artists and performers
  • Build industry links through workshops, guest lectures and visits led by world-class artists such as Gecko Theatre, Kneehigh, Prodigal Theatre and The Young Vic
  • Learn to use our extensive range of technical sound, lighting and recording equipment
  • Work with highly skilled and experienced practitioners, artists, academic staff and creative technicians
  • Create and take part in a range of projects, including a major production at the AMATA Festival
