BA(Hons) Acting has a strong focus on practical work and students experience performance opportunities from the first year onwards. The course engages critically with the research and practices of actor training and is informed by current scholarly thinking, historical traditions and contemporary approaches.
Hours of study and staff/student contact time are substantial averaging between 15 – 18 hours with extended hours during production and additional hours dedicated to student-led rehearsal. Students operate as trained actors in a climate of creative energy, constructive challenge and support.
Our course explores dynamic creative tensions between voice and language, the body as expressive material sign, and the imaginative and embodied interaction with theatrical space. It also explores affective, collaborative and ensemble approaches to the work of the creative actor and performer.
Core vocal and physical training, approaches to acting, and intensive production projects, will help you to explore, extend and fully engage as an actor and performer. BA(Hons) Acting prepares you for work in a range of contexts including theatre, studio, situated environments, TV, film, radio and new media.
