This course delivers a spectrum of learning opportunities spanning across new developments from experimental performance to mainstream stage, TV and radio work. It combines vocationally focused skills development with academic study and practical exploration of a range of theatre and performance approaches and forms. You will gain the knowledge, skills and understanding that will help you become a versatile and resilient creative practitioner.
You will be able to choose from a range of options to pursue your individual interests including acting for camera, singing, comedy writing and performance, multimedia performance, physical theatre and clowning. You will also have the opportunity to take part in publically performed projects, led by a professional director or member of staff. In your final year you will propose and develop your own practical performance work and can choose from a wide and challenging array of performance areas. Practical projects could include a devised performance; an original script; a physical theatre piece, an installation or live art works performed in non-traditional theatre spaces, a multi-media performance investigating digital culture and the human computer-interface or a directing project.
We have excellent professional partnerships and contacts in theatre venues and production companies across the region and encourage you to make the most of the numerous project and networking opportunities offered to you during your time at the University of Salford.
