Requisites for this module



Key module for

BA W412 Acting and Fight Performance

Module description

This final module is a devised project that will call upon on the skills and learning accumulated during the previous three years of study. Students will be divided into groups and will work with a Graduation Project Supervisor (GPS) in order to create a performance, suitable for public showing.

The final production will not simply be a display of `learned skills1, but will be an engaging piece of drama with a story, structure, and point of view. Much of the work for this project will be carried out independent of supervision - but the GPS will remain in constant contact with each group to ensure the creation of high-quality showing.

The detailed work of the module is dictated by the requirements of the specific project. It will include research, devising, rehearsals and performance.
