New Masters degree course at the Arts University College at Bournemouth



This is a taught MA based upon individuals’ project proposals. MA students in a range of arts oriented disciplines (fine art, animation, interactive media, costume, photography, graphic design, illustration) share seminars together.






MA in Contemporary Performance offers students the opportunity to focus on conceptual, theoretical, and kinesthetic approaches to contemporary live and mediated performance practice. In particular, we recognise and encourage inquiry in areas that relate to ‘site specific’, ‘site sympathetic’, live art, digital, post-text, and radical theatre practice. Exploring a broad range of methodologies, and culminating in the creation of a body of work/performance outcome, the focus is on the strengthening of independent theatre-making skills as well as encouraging students to engage in cross disciplinary collaborations. Considerations of audience and space will be central to the individual contextualisation of theory and praxis.
