Performance is the practice that brings creativity to life. It is fundamental to theatre-making, dance and live art; to story-telling in film, animation and games; and to communicating ideas in public relations and business. Whether your focus is artistic endeavour in professional production, cultural participation in community settings, or consumer practice in everyday life, you will learn how to analyse the significance of action and how to design experiences that engage audiences today. The Life of Performance gives you the skills to understand performance in the contemporary world. It approaches the study of performance across a broad spectrum from social rituals in local settings to multimedia events on the world stage. Through a combination of case studies and practical fieldwork, you will explore how participating in performance creates values, identities and beliefs that connect people together across global networks.
