Description

The Centre for Drama and Theatre Studies is a vigorous teaching department with an outstanding national research profile. The centre offers studies in the making and analysis of theatre and performance, and incorporates a wide range of approaches to theatre, striving to achieve a balance between rich and exploratory performance opportunities and a strong and challenging academic program; the element of performance (in text-based and devised productions) regarded as fundamental to the analysis of theatre texts and processes. The centre stages ten or more public productions each year along with the many smaller-scale productions.

Second and third-year units offer a range of options in the history, theory and practice of theatre. Students may choose to specialise in fields such as theatre history, directing, music theatre, movement and dance, technical aspects of theatre, script writing and design.
