Physical Theatre for Dancers and Actors

This course will enable you to enhance your expertise in physical theatre through working with professional performers (this year from the Jasmin Vardimon Company) within the university context. Throughout the course, you will have the opportunity to participate in independent and group-based practical projects, and to experientially and critically explore the methodological, historical and theoretical parameters of physical theatre. You will have the opportunity to produce solo and small group performances with an emphasis on integrating dance and theatre practice. This is a stand alone continuing professional development course. On successful completion, suitably qualified students may apply to undertake two further modules from the MA Theatre (Physical Theatre and Performance) to complete a Master's degree.

Assessment methods

Assessment is primarily through practice, including a short solo piece and a longer final group project (70%). Constructive critical reflection and analysis of each practical project will be examined through a short viva for the solo and a written portfolio and performance critique for the final project (3,000 - 3,500 words).
