Interventions is a practice-based course that examines the intersection between aesthetics and activism, in the social and political contexts shared by Live Art, Applied Theatre and Site-Specific Performance In addition to being provided with practical skills, students will also be introduced to work by a range of performance practitioners. Students will explore the politics and pleasures involved in performance practices that provoke, argue, or advocate for social change. This course maintains that performance is used to intervene in a variety of social, political and environmental contexts, which may include the street, commercial centres, health or social care systems, educational institutions, online and virtual environments and so on. As such, these performance interventions expose and challenge conventions and perceptions of everyday life. The course will require attendance at a series of workshops, as well as visits to appropriate sites or locations.
