This course will provide you with the skills to understand and make performance through exploring critical and historical frameworks alongside practical workshops. There are opportunities to engage with professional theatre-makers and our museum-accredited theatre archive - the Theatre Collection.
In your first year you will learn how to analyse performance and plays alongside developing practical skills in theatre design, lighting, control and production.
In your second and third years you will choose from a range of options that will deepen your analytical, critical, practical and historical expertise.Your degree culminates in an independent-study project. This can take the form of group or individual performance, extended essay and/or individual placement. Placement partners include the Bristol Old Vic, Mayfest, In Between Time, and Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory. Students can also undertake placements elsewhere, including overseas.
