MA Theatre for Community and Education
Validated by University of East Anglia
Two years (part-time)
Entry from April 2019.
Mountview’s MA in Theatre for Community and Education is a creative and challenging ensemble experience in the transformational power of theatre and theatre making.
In a society where access to the arts is at risk of being marginalised, this course develops the next generation of interdisciplinary theatre practitioners who will lead the way in providing meaningful arts experiences for all.
The course is aimed at theatre artists interested in the potential of theatre practices to address social, political and educational issues in a broad range of settings.
It is a professional training, vocational preparation and an education. It welcomes those practicing in youth, community and/or education settings, and those actors and performers looking to develop and diversify their career.
Working in a maximum cohort of 12 you will work with some of theatre’s most powerful pedagogies and practices, and consider ideas and perspectives from various fields of Applied Theatre and beyond. You will investigate barriers to arts engagement and inspiring approaches to widening arts participation while developing a growing awareness of those underrepresented in arts and culture.
Learning and teaching will involve a dynamic relation of practice and theory providing rigour and creativity through workshops, lectures, seminars and independent practice. Throughout the course you will learn and develop skills in teaching, leading and facilitating creatively and imaginatively.
