The Course

What we deliver

The course is delivered with 4 key principles in mind; Learn, Develop, Make and Launch. Each principle is explored throughout the year, culminating in a season in rep, Create,  featuring self devised or response work as well as Artistic Director led work from text. There are regular performance opportunities prior to the rep season, as well as the informal sharing of work at the end of each specialist study block.
