Throughout the world, the creative industries are booming. In the UK alone they contribute more than £100 billion to the economy* and employ more than 2 million people**. This number is growing faster than any other part of the economy. As working practices and technologies evolve, jobs in this sector will be some of the most resilient in the face of increasing automation.
Throughout the Performing & Production Arts course, we are learning through doing and exploring theory through practice.
Year One is very broad, we’re developing courage, skills and risk-taking in the widest range of performing arts disciplines. Imagination, body and voice, text work, devising, singing, design, directing, production, costume, lighting, collaborating, movement, ensemble work and more.
Year Two is all about you and developing your specialism. Who are you as a theatre maker? Where do you want to focus your journey into the future? We also love to engage with projects happening in the city and beyond.
The content of this qualification is designed to give students every possible chance to develop the skills, competencies and knowledge that will lead to a successful future in the creative industries or the many industries that require creative talent to support their business or enterprises.
