Performance Practice Project (DRAM096)

45 credits

The module provides you with the opportunity to develop and extend your research-based practice , leading to you sharing work appropriate to your chosen research topic (performance, work demonstration, or workshop) and to critically reflect on this process. This module builds on foundations of the performance practices and applied facilitation skills introduced in  DRAM136 Contemporary Performance Practices, which is a pre-requisite.

You will begin to develop a proposal for your project, which will be refined with staff feedback. You will participate in staff-led workshops, seminars and masterclasses with guest practitioners focusing on developing performance, composition, and devising skills. You will then work individually and collaboratively to develop your own project, under staff supervision. The module culminates with a performance or presentation of the research and a written critical reflection on the process. The performance or presentation can take place in-person and/or on an online platform.
