The University of Sheffield Politics Society

The degree equips you in a wide range of careers in the arts, charities, education, and beyond. We believe that open discussion with experts and the recognition of the causes of problems is a necessary presumption for any successful solution to political and social problems. Applicants are advised that we will not expect the personal statement to be tailored to this particular degree.

This module responds to these questions with an introduction to third wave feminism and queer theory. This lecture/ seminar series introduces you to key aspects of modern and postmodern thought, culture and theatre. It aims a) to examine historical and cultural contexts, and b) to explore and analyse the theoretical and culture concerns and practices which have been understood as modernist and postmodern.

You must be able to express a well-informed interest in theatre and performance theory and practice. I come from Romany Gypsy heritage, I would say that if you are from that community that higher education is for you, and you can feel included in educational spaces. I really enjoyed my time at Goldsmiths, I found the experience supportive throughout and my lecturers really helped me to grow. I have always struggled with formal education and I always felt as though I could express these emotions and felt guided in the best direction.

This module introduces a range of key theoretical perspectives that can be used to analyse a range of playtexts. The module also examines some of the major interventions in theatre over the centuries in order to assess the creative developments and outcomes in the light of key playwrights and theorists. Students will be asked to engage in textual analysis of individual plays, considering the contextual influences of history and culture as well as genre and form. A variety of approaches are covered, which can be used either individually or in conjunction, with the intention of providing the student with the tools necessary for rigorous critical and conceptual interpretation.

You will each take a specific role in contributing to the project dependent on the Scenographic Discipline you have elected. Each company, therefore, will comprise of a team of specialists in a range scenographic practices. As individual audience members, artists, participants, or students, we engage our imaginations and creativity to help us understand ourselves and the world around us. This degree is ideal if you have a passion for using performance for social change. You will learn performance and facilitation skills, while exploring the ideas that underpin them.

All the theatre-makers analysed on the module illustrate how today questions of identity and ethnicity in France and in its former colonies, are live, unresolved, and fluid. As the module material is in English, we will be considering what a theatre history beyond “national” borders means, through the example of the different artists whose work will be considered (from Mickiewicz to Staniewski; or between Kantor and the Theatre of the Eighth Day). Through targeted critical readings, you will situate their analyses of these performances within recent scholarship on the efficacy of political performance in a globalised, postmodern world. Through these disciplines you will be introduced to a range of key concepts, practitioners, and practical processes relating to Scenography.

You will be encouraged to explore, to take risks, to be self-reflexive and critically engaged. You will engage in depth with your specialist area through a series of workshop/seminars, related self-led, option-based learning exercises and critical reading. Running in parallel to these classes you will have a series of Personal and Professional Development workshops with alumni artists working in the different areas.
