Programme specification:

The programme will provide students with the opportunity to study Applied Theatre and Intervention within a School already known for its strength and expertise in working with external partners, community groups, institutions and local organisations. Externally facing work that addresses the social impact agenda has always been a key feature of the School’s ethos and features predominantly amongst existing activity. Applied work is conducted by a number of staff within the School and in a diverse range of contexts. Staff have strong links with existing organisations and institutions within the city and region. Students following this programme will benefit from those relationships, finding placement opportunities, internships and potential career paths as a result. The programme’s focus on intervention signals a distinctiveness that separates it from other applied theatre programmes. The emphasis here is on the potential of theatre and performance to interrupt, confront, subvert, transform, transcend, reconfigure and re-imagine. It is envisaged that new approaches to radical interventionist practice will be explored and developed that address the wider frames of the political, the social, the personal and the artistic as well as the more conventional pedagogical contexts associated with applied theatre.

As with all our PGT provision, the programme will allow students to collaborate across programmes and take optional modules that will encourage interdisciplinary practice.
