Comments about MA in Performance and Representation - At the institution - Belfast - Belfast - Belfast - Northern Ireland
This MA examines performance as both artistic activity and mode of cultural expression. Taught by staff across the School of Languages, Literatures and Performing Arts, the programme is uniquely placed to offer students an opportunity to study the major genres and contexts of performance through a wide range of perspectives; dramatic, literary, cinematic, pictorial and musical. All of the modules adopt a genuinely interdisciplinary approach to their chosen topics of study and throughout the course students are encouraged to think beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries and theoretical categories. Assessment tasks will reflect this aim, enabling students to address issues and develop arguments informed by both critical and creative practice.
