EGH323 : Theatre Practice: Research Project - Applied Theatre

Convener(s): Dr Bill McDonnell


General Information

Students will participate in a staff-led practical research project exploring the history and social use of applied theatre methods and forms. They will be expected to participate in the creative development, organisation and delivery of one or more applied theatre projects in, for example, local schools, museums and community contexts. The process of work will be investigative, and students will be expected to explore specific and current questions about applied theatre practices through their work. The assessed performance/workshop(s) will be expected to embody some of their learning and answers to research questions, which may be either conclusive or provisional.


Teaching will be through staff directed practical workshops and seminars, student led practice workshops, individual and collective research, and viewing of live and recorded performance and performance-related material.


There will be two assessments for this module: 1. The creation and delivery of an applied theatre programme. (50%) 2. A portfolio containing individual reflection on the practice, the reading and the research undertaken during the module. (50%)
