Here’s what you’ll do as part of BA (Hons) Costume and Performance Design:
The emphasis of the units in the first year is giving a solid grounding in both Performance Design and Costume Interpretation enabling students to experience the creative processes from different perspectives.
The second year begins in the autumn term with Creative Realisation: Design or Interpretation. Following this, you will embark on the Advanced Skills unit. These workshops develop knowledge and skills.
The focus of the final year is to test your ability to ‘do it for real’. We really believe in learning by doing as well as learning on speculative projects, so the course is focused on real live film, theatre and site-specific projects.
Collaborative working is absolutely fundamental to everything we do in the course. We love to work with other AUB courses and with external professional companies and individuals. The course team believe that students learn by doing not just in a theoretical context.
We help out students to experience work based learning outside and inside the AUB. Within the University we make the most of our USP – namely that we are the only institution to enjoy the complementary synchronicity of BA Costume and Performance Design with BA Acting, BA Film Production and BA Make up for Media and Performance all within a compact campus. We think it’s like a small film studio or large theatre complex! This makes the work we do very challenging and very exciting. Students learn to work in teams to create brilliant work. It is very rewarding to be part of this creative energy.
