Welcome to Theatre
If you aspire to work in today’s vibrant and diverse theatre industry, our Theatre programmes are designed for you. You will be taught by expert staff in the purpose built Antonin Artaud Centre. Our performance centre sits at the heart of our creative community and houses a fully equipped main theatre and studio theatre as well as rehearsal and recording studios. Our programmes are highly practice focused and you will learn core skills in theatre-making while at the same time studying historical, theoretical and critical perspectives. Theatre skills offered include: Acting, Directing, Playwriting, Applied Theatre, Physical Theatre and Digital Performance. Our proximity to London allows you to engage with an exciting range of performance practices and venues and a career-focused work placement in your final year builds on the range of professional development activities that are a feature of our programme.
Our Research Centre, the Centre for Contemporary and Digital Performance, runs an annual series of Performance Research Seminars. These events are open to everyone and admission is free. The latest dates can be found on the CCDP pages.
