Description Of Opportunity:

International Theatre Practice and Performance MFA

International Theatre Practice and Performance (ITPP) offers training for multi-disciplinary practitioners, with elements of acting, directing, writing, ensemble training and contemporary performance.

Duration: 24 Months (MFA) / Start Date: September 2024

This program, designed specifically for US-based students , is delivered in partnership with National Theater Institute (NTI) in Connecticut. Drawing on the benefits and experience of two noteworthy educational institutions with an excellent history of delivering high-quality theatre training, you will study performance and theatre creation in its totality: acting, directing, playwriting, music theatre, ensemble creation, physical and visual theatre, contemporary performance practices, theory, history, and dramatic literature, as well as several basic aspects of technical theatre.

Integrating British and American approaches to theatre training, this program attracts highly motivated, internationally-minded students who are interested in developing a multimodal practice (including skills in acting, directing, writing, and collaborative ensemble creation) while also focusing on self-sustaining approaches to theatre making. ITPP will afford you an opportunity to build a network and make connections on both sides of the Atlantic, including the possibility to work and live in the UK for two additional years upon completion of studies, thanks to the UK Graduate Visa.

Collaborative Theatre Making MA/MFA

Collaborative Theatre Making (CTM) allows you to explore your experience as an ensemble theatre maker and to develop your existing practice.

Duration: 13 months (MA), 24 Months (MFA) / Start Date: October 2024

This program focuses on creating an ensemble, performer training, theatre making and performative writing. Informed by critical reflection and practice research, the uniqueness of this program lies in the opportunity to develop and present original work. In a collaborative context, students move creatively between different roles to develop skills in collaborative performance and independent making practice.

You will be taught, guided and mentored by experienced staff and world-leading theatre practitioners as you explore different processes and develop new skills. As well as core workshops in performance, movement, voice and devising, you will learn from and collaborate with professional artists. You will focus on generating original work, with regular opportunities to collaborate with peers across the post-graduate school. The course is highly responsive to the individuals within the cohort.

You will be encouraged to share work with audiences both within and beyond Rose Bruford, and will share original work in a London theatre venue at the end of the year.

Recent and upcoming ITPP and CTM instuctors, visiting companies and practitioners include: Complicité, Punchdrunk, Forced Entertainment, Sasha Waltz & Guests, Katie Mitchell, Martin Crimp, Mita Pujara, Lorenzo Montanini, Kathy Pogson, Paul Brennen, and many others.
