The BA Contemporary Performance-making programme is not running in academic year 2023/24, but will be part of a formal revalidation process being undertaken by the School of Drama, Dance, Production and Film in the 24/25 academic cycle.
BA Contemporary Performance-making is a three-year degree programme curated to be responsive to developments inside and outside the field of performance and new understandings of the world in the 21st century. It combines intensive studio practice with rigorous critical and theoretical study to inform a variety of aesthetic choices and expressions.
Led by a world-class team of artists and teachers this groundbreaking new programme – the only one of its kind in the UK – explores the future of performance making. Through the interdisciplinary approach which we’re committed to at RCS, the programme builds on a broad range of styles of performance, including live performance, choreography, movement research, site specific performance, performance installation, post-dramatic theatre, contemporary theatre, sound art, participatory performance, critical/activist social performance, social justice and performative writing.
