Looking for a course that'll prepare you for life as a leader in theatre and the performing arts? The Theatre and Performance (Hons) programme from London Metropolitan University does just that. We emphasise learning by doing, which means you’ll not only gain comprehensive knowledge of theatre production from conception to performance, but also create and showcase your own performances.
We will work with you to create original performances from your very first year, with a number of opportunities to share your work. By Year 3, once you have gained enough knowledge, skills and confidence, you’ll create and perform an original piece that you have made at one of London’s arts institutions or theatres. This will involve a group project, where you write, direct, perform and even market your own show – equipping you with practical experience of creating theatre from all aspects.
Although the programme includes significant training in acting, the goal is to provide you with knowledge of all major areas of the industry, from writing and directing to design and stage management. The performance-specific classes include subjects such as acting, voice, movement, ideas in theatre and much more. This holistic approach is designed to help you to find yourself as an artist.
The course is taught by active theatre practitioners who bring their industry experience to the classroom. Your lecturers come from varied and specialised backgrounds in theatre and performance, including artists who have worked in London’s West End, including Tate Modern, Royal National Theatre and Roundhouse and many other venues around the world. Their diverse experience and approaches to performance will empower you to examine the way you think about performance and help you find your own artistic direction.
Where this course can take you
There is a focus on helping you develop professional skills throughout the course. As a graduate you could find yourself working in many exciting areas of theatre, including acting, directing, producing, community performance or theatre in education, theatre-making, arts policy making, arts administration or marketing.
Much of the course replicates working industry environments, which strengthens the careers education element of the course. Staff maintain strong links with the industry and use these to help students to access opportunities for internships and employment during and after the course. Modules in creative and cultural industries and business and marketing will give you the opportunity to learn the skills appropriate for self-management in the arts.
