MA PERFORMANCE: THEATRE OR THEATRE COLLECTIVES
Our Performance programme is designed especially for interdisciplinary theatre and performance artists or groups*.
A part ‘taught’, part ‘research’ delivery model, the programme is centred on core modules in postgraduate research methodologies, around which you create a new piece of work, an artists portfolio, business plan, and a practice-led-research project.
Our relationship to the Fine Art department means we welcome those who’s practice and approaches fall in-between, or outside of, or crossover, conventional and/or traditional labels and contexts for Theatre, Performance and the Live Arts.
Our programmes and their delivery focus on:
Postgraduate level academic development for artists
Interdisciplinary practice-led research methodologies
A “do it yourself” ethos, and strategies for professional self-reliance
Practice led research and development of new work
Innovation and experimentation in contemporary live arts making
Key features include:
Flexible delivery, with options to study full-time, part-time, or through distance learning.
Mentoring by international theatre and performance artists
Opportunities to present work at national events, platforms and festivals
This programme is designed to be extremely flexible, reflecting the diversity of approaches to making contemporary theatre and performance. The Department of Theatre at Chichester has an established reputation for working with a wide range of contemporary performance artists who recognise the opportunities of creative research and development within an applied university context.
Our programme is run by a team of leading-edge interdisciplinary academics and artists, who also teach on the highly successful BA Theatre programme, and on the Performing Arts MPhil/PhD programme. We work very closely with a wide range of established artists and performance collectives – both members of Faculty and Associate Artists – who recognise the unique contribution Chichester makes to supporting new theatre and performance work.
Bishop Otter Campus
Our Bishop Otter Campus in Chichester is set in beautiful surroundings with plenty of relaxing green space and a combination of attractive, historic buildings and excellent modern facilities. Back in 1839, the campus was founded by William Otter, Bishop of Chichester. 180 years later, the University still retains a strong sense of history as original parts still remain. Chichester is a beautiful city which offers a wealth of history and culture. It has many historical places to discover such as Chichester Cathedral, Market Cross and Chichester City Walls. Alongside its history, Chichester is surrounded by breath-taking sandy beaches with East and West Wittering beaches only 20 minutes away from campus. The South Downs National Park begins just 1.5 miles from our Chichester campus. From rolling hills to bustling market towns, the South Downs National Park's landscapes cover 1,600km² of breath-taking views and hidden gems. With Brighton, Portsmouth and Southampton all under an hour away, the University of Chichester is perfectly placed for exploring the south coast.
