The MA Performance: Screen course offers an experimental, open and discursive framework in which to explore the convergent mediums of performance and moving image via critical thinking and experimental studio practice.

Students are encouraged to situate their work within the context of the wider social, political and economic conditions of our digitally networked society and interrogate how images are encountered, produced and consumed.

Aimed at hybrid moving image and performance makers, this course supports an expanding field of practice across performance art, artists' moving image, cinema, experimental film, participatory practice, documentary and post-internet art to encourage new approaches and methodologies of making, processes and outcomes.

The course promotes the acquisition of practical production skills, including directing and dramaturgy, cinematography, lighting, choreography, blocking, sound recording, editing and colour grading, whilst simultaneously developing an in-depth knowledge and understanding of relevant critical discourses, including theories of performativity, mediation, and representation.

Student outputs may include single or multiscreen narrative works, documentary essay film through observational and guerrilla filmmaking techniques, site-specific installations, hybrid documentaries, experimental films, performance lectures, and online and immersive projects.

MA Performance: Screen graduates will be prepared for a variety of careers in performance and screen industries and will have the agility and confidence to diversify and respond to the demands of the current climate
