|Create original, contemporary performances. Learn to make audiences think, react and engage. Take a critical, experimental, and practical, approach to learning about how stories get performed and deepen your understanding of their power to enact social change. Develop skills to produce performance in a variety of spaces and situations, as you discover how to creatively respond to diverse social, historical and cultural contexts.
As part of developing your performance practice you’ll engage with a broad range of approaches to understanding the creation of performance through a variety of lenses and diverse practices including: Indigenous storytelling, gender & sexuality in performance, the avant-garde, puppetry, urbanism, and post-colonial critique. As an emerging performer creator, you will benefit from training that moves across disciplinary boundaries, and that will provide you with core foundational courses in theatre history, directing, playwriting, performance studies, and dramaturgy.
