Level 4 (15 credits)

Interventions examines the intersections between performance and activism. You will be introduced to work by a range of performance practitioners and theorists across live art, applied theatre and site-specific performance. Throughout the module, you will explore how performance practices can provoke, argue, and advocate for social change. The module draws on international case studies, and you will undertake fieldwork rooted in the economic, historical and political contexts around our campus. Emphasis is also placed on developing your skills in communicating to audiences in, and beyond, the university.
