MA Site-Specific Theatre Practice

Subject to Validation by University of East Anglia

One year (full-time); entry from January 2019

Shoreditch Town Hall is thrilled to be working in partnership with leading UK drama school Mountview on the launch of a new MA in Site-Specific Theatre Practice: the first course of its kind in the UK created and led by renowned practitioner Geraldine Pilgrim. Students will be resident within Shoreditch Town Hall alongside accessing the world class training facilities at Mountview’s new home in Peckham.

A fast-growing art form, site-specific theatre has captured the imagination of theatre and fine art practitioners throughout the UK and internationally. Pilgrim has been making site-specific performances and installations for over twenty years in sites including empty and occupied office blocks, schools, hotels, swimming pools, factories, hospitals, stately homes and parks.

The course is aimed at practitioners with an art or drama background wanting to diversify their artistic skills in the area of site-specific practice. Applications are welcomed from those with experience in the fine art, theatre or related industries as well as those currently studying at BA level. Learning will cover practical skills and creative realisation as well as theoretical and methodological investigation.

Applications for the MA in Site-Specific Theatre Practice are now open. There are a maximum of eight students per cohort and the course is subject to validation by the University of East Anglia.
