Through research-based practice, this course puts you and your aspirations at the center of your learning, whilst refining your chosen specialist pathway as a director, performer, choreographer, or entrepreneur.
Through four modules across the Autumn and Spring Semesters, you will apply a theoretical lens to your own and others’ professional practice.
