In this module students work in companies led by a tutor to explore the performance-making strategies of a select practitioner, company and/or practice. You explore those strategies through research that is both text-based (reading, viewing, etc.) and practice-based. You will develop select key practical skills as required to work in the mode of the practitioner, company and/or practice studied. Adopting and critically adapting the performance-making strategies studied, each student company makes a performance for presentation.
