Drama

Drama at Queen Mary explores the many forms that theatre and performance might take and asks how they intervene in the wider world. Discover more at one of our Open Days.

We focus on developing students’ knowledge and expertise, both practical and theoretical, about performance, its histories, how it intervenes in the present, and how these things might affect the future.

We’re not tied to rigid definitions of performance, and investigate how it can be used in different settings – theatres, art galleries and museums, schools, prisons, warehouses, and the street – in the UK and internationally.

Before coming to Queen Mary, I knew little about live art. Studying drama has enabled me to thoroughly explore the field. I graduated with a solid set of knowledge and experience, which I confidently apply to my practice as a performance artist.
