BA (Hons) Performing Arts

Module code: DRA328

Module name: Acting Practices

Number of credits: 20

Overview

Examine contemporary approaches to acting in relation to the ideas and methodologies of a selection of leading contemporary theatre practitioners. Contextualise these through reference to a particular theatrical tradition, style, form or approach (eg physical theatre, postmodern theatre, performance art, immersive theatre, autobiographical theatre). Collaborate on researching and analysing the ideas of a practitioner from a negotiated list and demonstrate your ability to apply/respond to the ideas of this practitioner to create performance work. Engage in individual research into an aspect of contemporary theatre practice and carry out a critical analysis of this research. Conduct independent research in order to develop an in-depth, theoretical and practical understanding of a performance style.
