BA/FDA in Theatre and Contemporary Performance

With specialist strands in Theatre and Contemporary Performance or Musical Theatre, you will learn acting, directing and playwriting techniques, develop your vocal and singing skills, and take part in ballet, tap, and jazz classes. Emphasis is on learning through practice, underpinned by theoretical study, meaning you will work towards the regular realisation of performances, either in the 200 seat Olympus Theatre, the Loft studio theatre, or in professional or site-specific venues.

Taught by staff with current professional experience as actors/directors/writers/ choreographers, the course provides a high level of guidance and technical underpinning from friendly and highly qualified staff who operate an open- door policy for academic and pastoral support. Our strong links to Bristol’s theatre industry mean regular lectures and workshops from specialist professionals. There will be plenty of opportunities for extra curriculum activities.
