About Theatre Making at University of Kent

Location: Canterbury


This MA is intended for graduates from theatre and performing arts degrees and other subjects as well as emerging theatre artists who want to further pursue their experimentation with a range of advanced theatre-making practices.

On this programme, you will acquire skills in a range of approaches to making performance, drawing on techniques from directing, devising, ensemble performance and performance art, in order to develop your own individual and/or company practice.

Throughout the autumn term you will be taught in weekly workshops and create performances in response to professional commissions, often in association with a local arts venue or site. In parallel you will study the relationship between theatre and audiences through weekly lecture-seminars.

In the spring term you will conceive, develop and manage an original practical and creative project at an advanced level, taking for example the role of writer, director or performer on this project for the duration of the term. This will be supported through weekly supervisions and workshops by visiting professionals. In parallel you will take a Professional Study module, for which you will undertake a placement with an artist or theatre company (to be sourced by the student), as well as attending lectures on professional practice, including topics such as funding applications and marketing.

For the summer term you will develop your own independent research project, which may include a practice-as-research element.

Please contact us on arts-pgadmissions@kent.ac.uk if you wish to discuss your application.

    Academic excellence - Stephanie Bourgeois from France is studying for a BSc in Biochemistry.
