Drama and Performing Arts
Performance is the essence of life itself. Theatre can act as pure, joyous entertainment, social commentary or social reform: it is a powerful life creative medium that cannot be forgotten easily
The emotional connection is not tangible but resides in the shared experience between two human beings in one space. As an actor, we step into the shoes of the breadth of humanity, and live their experience in the moment.
Like all of the Arts, upon entering the stage, actors leave themselves exposed to very personal criticism that requires then to develop resilience, courage and conviction. Throughout their years of study students develop and hone skills from devising, performing and writing scripted work. Future work is influenced by practitioners and existing performance pieces; which are analysed and evaluated to assist with performance genre, style and understanding.
