Independent performers are responsible for the entirety of their work. This includes conceiving the idea, writing the text, composing the score and/or choreography, designing the visuals, securing equipment, mastering the technology, locating the venue, producing and marketing the event and finally performing the piece. This module will provide practical skills and experience in each of these aspects of independent performance. You will create a performance piece of at least ten minutes in length which will be performed in at least two of the Performance Nights. The piece will then be critiqued and rewritten for a final performance in weeks 10 and 11 of the module. As well as producing, performing and publicising the work, the class will be required to set up and run the performance space for the Performance Nights that will be held once a week throughout the first semester.
