Education

2015

MA Performance Practices and Research

Royal Central School of Speech and Drama

Sep 2014 - Sep 2015
  • London, UK
  • This Masters programme allows for and encourages the practice of each individual student to be explored, rather than prescribing a set of teaching / skills to be administered throughout the year - acting almost as 'the first year of a PhD study'. Throughout my time on this course, I explored further the relationships between Performance theory and Philosophy, whilst also exercising my skills within both theatrical and media production, project management and creative marketing. Throughout the year I ran various events and 'mini-festivals', including co-ordinating the marketing for the BRINK2015 festival, an public festival which showcases the final MA performances of the course. This was alongside creating and showing my own work within the festival itself. Recently I have been invited back to this course to co-ordiniate the BRINK2016 festival and also provide production support to the PhD festivals.

2014

BA(Hons) European Theatre Arts

It's weighting is 50% Practice and 50% Theory - emphasising the importance of both parts informing and bettering the other. Throughout this degree I explored aspects of Theatre practice and production, design and the relationship between Theatre/Performance theory, Fine Art practice and Philosophy.
