BA Theatre-Making and Young People is a unique course that has been designed in association with industry partners with, by, and for young people. It will be structured around four key modules that have been designed in association with our industry partners and professional artists from these companies will co-deliver on the following modules: Youth Theatre and Social Justice; Shakespeare and Classical Theatre-Making with Young People; Theatre in Education (TIE); and Producing and Making Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA). These projects provide rich opportunities for students to work on real world performance projects with, by and for young people. Students will have the opportunity to learn core theatre skills in directing, devising, writing, and facilitation. They will study modules in which they examine the historical, political and social contexts in which young peopleâ??s theatre work is made, the formal and informal educational contexts for this work and the pedagogy that underpins it. They will be introduced to the work of key practitioners and theoreticians, alongside the work of contemporary artists who are developing theatre making with, by, and for young people today. The course aims to develop the students' knowledge and understanding of the rich ecology of the British theatre industry and students will have the opportunity to apply for work experience on a range of placements. In line with other creative arts courses at Coventry, this degree will encourage students to develop as reflective practitioners. It will offer students a pathway that aims to equip them with the specialist skills, knowledge, and experience to enhance their employability and help them to pursue a career in participatory theatre-making with a distinct focus on Theatre in Education, Drama in Education, Theatre for Young Audiences, and Youth Theatre. The course is conceived in three broad layers: 1. Practice-based modules in which performance, skills are developed in workshop settings and in real world projects with professional companies; 2. Academic research and investigation, where students are required to explore the contexts and pedagogy that underpins theatre work with young people; 3. Industry-focussed, career research and employability where students will have the opportunity to work with professional artists and gain work experience on a range of placements.
