Synopsis

This unit involves the development under staff supervision of two projects: one a sustained piece of written argument, appropriately referenced, on an approved research topic, and the other a short original performance work that explores theatrically an aspect of the thesis topic. The projects should inform one another, and in the process illuminate and articulate the possibilities and limits of a nexus between performance and written research.

Outcomes

On completion of ATS4747, students should have developed:

  1. Skills in the acquisition, organisation and presentation of a short thesis on an approved topic.
  2. The capacity to conceive and develop a short performance piece that relates to that topic.
  3. An understanding of the applicability of performance practice to the investigation of a research question, and experience in integrating evidence from the processes of performance into sustained conceptual argument.
  4. Enhanced skills in research methodology and in the construction of clear and coherent written argument.
