  • Overview

    Rationale and Purpose of the Module: 
    This module is to support students to develop the skills to understand and the artistic repertoires from a range of contexts. The students will address a number of repertoires. This diverse engagement is in order to prepare the students for entry into the professional performance contexts and also expand their career options in other aspects of performance.

    Syllabus: 
    Students will be required to specialise in voice or dance, and will work under the direction of guest 
    tutors and faculty to create, design and produce a number of performance projects, including solo and ensemble works. This work will be presented in a range of performance contexts featuring the student's own work in addition to the works from the repertories they have studied. Students will be encouraged to engage contemporary and alternative repertoires.
