EGH221 : Theatre Practice: Performance I

Convener(s): Professor Steve Nicholson

 

General Information

This is a studio-based module in which students will engage practically with one or more texts from a given period or genre. They will contribute as members of a group to explorations of the material from different perspectives, focusing primarily on its challenges and potential for staging today. Under staff supervision or direction, they will then work creatively to rehearse and perform all or sections of the text to an audience. Within this process, there may be opportunities to approach the material from within a variety of roles, including those of performers, designers, directors and dramaturgs. Alongside the practical work, students will also study the material from appropriate and specific theoretical and historical perspectives, which will both feed into and draw from the practical work.

Teaching

Tutor-led practical workshops and seminars; individual and group research into specific areas and questions, including practice-based research; theatre visits, as appropriate. Rehearsal under staff supervision and/or direction.
