Description of module content:

Your work in this trimester will consist of working in a simulated professional environment to produce a sustained stage performance. The type and length of the material chosen may range from contemporary to period, and may involve any number of cast members, depending upon the group's and the projects' needs. The rehearsals and classes will approach professional conditions with condensed rehearsal periods, working towards a finished and professional standard performance. The project will be technically, intellectually and emotionally more challenging than those in earlier years. Your understanding and knowledge of the work will be extended by your increased experience, and your technical acting, vocal and movement skills, will be further developed by rehearsal and direction. You will complete an annotated bibliography of research which is specific to your part(s) in the production. You will also complete a fully realised stage performance(s) over a number of performances. You will also critically reflect on and evaluate your peers’ contribution and professionalism throughout the module.
