|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Creative Arts (pre 2015)
Available to all Students
As an ensemble students research selected playwrights and theatre practitioners whose
theatrical praxis is essentially 'imagist'. Playwrights include Samuel Beckett, Sarah
Kane and Suzan Lori-Parks. The subject will also include a detailed study of theatrical
landscaping in the works of Jan Fabre, Pina Bausch, Robert Wilson, and Robert Le Page.
Students analyse and research the theatrical dynamics of repetition, pause, silence
and moving tableau for contemporary theatre projects from the perspective of the actor,
director, designer and spectator. Students also undertake a production role: production/stage
manager, lighting, sound, props, set, costume design or devised multimedia/video production.
- ability to analyse contemporary plays within a social, political and historical context;
- ability to apply theoretical paradigms to the devised performance;
- fundamental experience exploring the physical properties of live performance.
