Performance and Circus Studies - PERF201

This unit is a broad introduction to performance and circus practices, covering a wide range of forms and disciplines. This unit focuses on giving students an introduction to the social and cultural history of new performance forms from the rise of New Circus, post-modern dance and new forms of theatre in the 1960s to the multimodal contemporary forms that they have developed into today. The unit is aimed at all students including those with no prior performance experience. Students have the opportunity to create self-devised performance work in solo/duo and group contexts.
