You will have access to flexible performance spaces, with lighting and sound equipment, a dance studio, rehearsal rooms and additional external facilities, including professional theatre venues.

We encourage you to critically assess the global influences acting has as an art form, and we reference these in lectures and workshops. 

You will study:

  • acting
  • voice
  • movement
  • singing
  • mask work
  • accent/dialects
  • contemporary dance
  • stage combat.
