Studying at Royal Holloway in one of the country's largest drama departments will develop your intellectual, practical, verbal, and written skills, while nurturing your interest in dance alongside drama.
This course encourages the practical engagement with performance texts through embodied awareness. It aims to enhance your imaginative and analytical development, and it integrates theory and practice throughout.
You will also gain:
- an ability to think critically, creatively and contextually in relation to historical, cultural and political underpinnings in drama and dance
- an ability to bring together theory and practice through written and performance work
- embodied awareness as both a dance and theatre practitioner
During the first year you will be introduced to modules that offer a range of practical, technical and analytical skills. Building on this, you will participate in a performance research project in the second year and, in the third year, complete a substantial piece of work, which may be a dissertation, a choreographic group production, or another independent learning project. Modules will range from Theatre and Performance Making, Theatre and Text to Dance History and Analysis, Dance and Culture, Choreography and Composition, and Physical Theatre. Tutors will vary and will include lecturers, invited speakers from the performing arts, and/or professional companies.
