Programme Convenor: Fiona Templeton
The MA Contemporary Performance Making is one-year (full time) or two-year (part time) practice-focused programme designed for highly motivated aspiring artists who want to develop their artistic practice in one or more of Brunel’s specialist areas: ‘writing/directing’, ‘live-art/installation’, and ‘digital performance’. The practice-focused programme draws upon both facilities and expertise at Brunel and the vast resources of London and offers a combination of critical engagement and practice-based research.
In addition to a broad training in practices and theories of contemporary performance, which is delivered through a number of core modules, you will work toward your final project in close collaboration with one or more of Brunel’s internationally renowned artists and theorists, which include Johannes Birringer, Sue Broadhurst, Stelarc and Fiona Templeton, among others. The programme also features regular guest seminars and workshops by some of the most influential artists and theorists of today (guests have included Ron Athey, Franko B Kira O’Reilly, Julian Maynard-Smith and Wendy Houstoun, among many others).
