Writing for Performance

This course is designed for students who wish to develop their writing skills in the field of live and recorded performance. Studio practice will be at the heart of the programme. Taking the premise of David Edgar that performance writing is both an art and a craft; the programme will divide from the start into both exploration of the students' own work and study of the contemporary and historical canon. Our unique Learning Theatre provides a stimulating learning environment, in a professional arena with vital industry contacts. You will be warmly welcomed into a vibrant community of artists and makers across a range of creative fields. Independent writers, directors and developers are our staff, as well as specialist academics in the field. Our strong links in the industry include QUAD Arts Centre and Cinema, the BFI, the BBC and Creative England. Our experience and knowledge of professional writing in these environments allow us to support you towards a sustainable career in writing. These are excellent opportunities to be inspired, to network and to meet future collaborators.
