Practice-based Research Project

Level 6 (30 credits)

This module facilitates the development and production of a practice-based research project that is proposed individually, in pairs or a small group . You will formulate a project proposal outlining research questions, thematics, aesthetics, contexts, touchstones and methodologies that will be developed through independent research, peer support mechanisms and tutor mentoring. Through weekly workshops and student-led practice sessions you will be introduced to a range of performance-making approaches, research strategies, tools and techniques, and will be encouraged to devise your own research methodologies for generating performance materials and processes. Through the module you will explore, interrogate, test, develop and focus your research project, conducting on-going documentation of your research, working towards mid-module work-in-progress showings and culminating in a Festival of Performance in May.
