    The Musicality of Beckett's Plays on the Page and in Performance

    Wednesday 25th January: Dr. Danijela Kulezic-Wilson

    In her presentation Dr. Kulezic-Wilson will explore how Beckett’s infatuation with music led him to reach beyond the denotative purpose of language and imagine his theatre plays as musical compositions. She will be discussing how Beckett’s lifelong striving to achieve the perceptual immediacy of music through words was the primary force behind his reinvention of language and the creation of several landmark works in modern theatre.

    Higher Diploma in Arts (Theatre & Performative Practices) - launched for 2017/18

    The Department of Drama & Theatre Studies is pleased to introduce a new Higher Diploma in Arts (Theatre and Performative Practices) in the academic year 2017/18. 

     

    The Higher Diploma in Arts (Theatre & Performative Practices) is a conversion course to Theatre-related studies for students with degrees in subjects other than Theatre or with Theatre as a minor subject. Completion of the Higher Diploma in Theatre & Performative Practices effectively converts your degree to the equivalent of an honours degree with Theatre as the main subject. 
    It is designed for non-theatre graduates who wish to upskill, gain an additional qualification in the area of Theatre & Performative Practices which will pave the way to further study at MA or PhD level.
