Birmingham School of Acting still has places left

May 1st, 2013 1:21 pm

There are still places left on the BA (Hons) Applied Performance (Community and Education) Programme at Birmingham School of Acting / Birmingham City University.

 

This course would suit students enthusiastic about interdisciplinary performance and would like the opportunity to use performance as a tool to raise awareness, inform and educate. Students make work with and for young people and community groups across the City. Projects have included work around homelessness and displacement, family and children’s theatre, disability, 2011 riots and Hate Crime. A recent project ‘She’ at The Drum for Year 10 students looked at girls’ relationships with gangs.

We have some exciting industry partners, The REP, mac birmingham, The Drum and Playhouse Theatre Company and our current focus is creating pathways to employment for our graduates. We are looking for applicants who would like to make a difference to the lives of young people and communities in Birmingham through performance. Although, UCAS is now closed, students can apply directly to the School through the website.

Year 1 student feedback:

 

“The applied performance course has so far opened up new possible opportunities for possible careers in the future. I constantly want to create work to inspire people, raise awareness of issues and raise debate. In this first year, I have built on my existing skill base and I am learning new skills and theory which has been exciting. I look forward to continued work with my colleagues and lecturers.”

 

Kind Regards
