This unit consists of the development of a single performance or creative project together with a written submission supporting the student's process and achievement in the project in the light of its defined objectives. 'Creative Project' will provide the opportunity for students whose primary interests are in performance making or imaginative writing to engage in the development of an original project. The reflective analytical document will be a required component of the unit, but the primary emphasis will be placed on the creative exploration itself.


On completion of DTS4700, students should have:

  1. Developed their skills in the creative conceptualizing, organization and production of an original piece of work in the area of theatre and/or the performing arts.

  1. Gained a reflective appreciation of the intersections between the generation of creative projects and the investigation of a clearly defined topic in the area of creative and performance processes in the theatre.

  1. Enhanced their capacities both for independent creative initiative and for effective work with others.

  1. Developed their readiness and ability to articulate creative choices in oral and written form.


Creative/performance piece (equivalent to 15,000 words): 80%
