In the following year you'll continue with your creative practice, devising performances and workshops for an external organisation such as a prison, museum or school. You'll also learn to apply different research methods and think about the political, historical, social and cultural contexts of performance practitioners. You'll choose from a range of optional modules to explore your interests, from dance to arts marketing or cultural history.
By your third year you'll have more independence in your practice and research, producing a self-directed independent project and choosing how you'll be assessed. You'll either take part in a collaborative, large-scale public performance or try your hand at an enterprise project. A core module will allow you to explore important issues in the contemporary arts and cultural sector, and you'll demonstrate your knowledge and skills with an independent research project on a topic of your choice.
The School is based in stage@leeds, a purpose-built, landmark building that sits at the heart of the campus. It houses two professional standard, publicly licensed theatres. The main space seats 180 and is equipped with the latest technologies. It hosts a range of work by students and visiting theatre companies. The other theatre studio provides a technically advanced performance research facility. The building also contains a dance studio, dressing rooms, box office and meeting rooms.
Other facilities in the School include rehearsal rooms, two black-box studios, costume construction and wardrobe stores, design studio, scenic workshop, computer aided design and video-editing and sound recording suites.
