Our approach to learning
Performers and those who make performance possible need to work harmoniously and creatively together. This synergy can't be taken for granted, since everyone has a different way of reacting to the world around them. Inter-personal skills, like persuasion and negotiation and understanding how groups can work well, are critical if the paying public want to experience a satisfying event.
The synergy here between performers, producers, managers, designers and technicians replicates industry practice.
No-one ever just does their job. It's how a job is done, within a group, that encourages a group to reform for another a project because they want to work together again.
Project based performance learning
The objective is to create, which is why our learning is based wholly around conceiving and delivering events or products.
Not only that. It's a truism that performers are their own product, as it is that every show, every band is a new enterprise. This is why we place serious emphasis on enterprise skills for everyone and why we support student and graduate entrepreneurship.
