Practical Essay (DRA3061)

30 credits

This module allows you to spend a term developing and delivering a performance project with a small group of like-minded peers from your year-group. This is a practical essay, so the research element is as important to the project as your performance. You will spend your time reading and practically interpreting a defined research question, building on material you might have encountered on any part of the Drama programme. You will work in small groups with shared interests. Each group identifies a core audience and creates a piece of researched practice for a context beyond the University. You will primarily be assessed on the appropriateness and success of the choices you make in relation to the context in which you work. This module is a jewel in the crown of the degree and a chance to realise your research in practice -- in public!
