Performance Composition

Level 6 (30 credits)

Independent performers are responsible for the entirety of their work. This includes conceiving the idea, writing the text, composing the score and/or choreography, designing the visuals, securing equipment, mastering the technology, locating the venue, producing and marketing the event and finally performing the piece. This module provides practical skills and experience in each of these aspects of independent performance. As well as producing, performing and publicising the work, the group will be required to set up and run the performance space for the Performance Nights that will be held weekly during the semester.
