ATS3834 is a continuation and development of ATS3833. It offers students the opportunity to undertake rehearsal in a professional manner and to bring that project to fruition in the public performance of a major length theatrical work or a number of shorter works. This unit emphasises the quality of all elements of the processes of preparation and rehearsal, in addition to that of its public product.


Upon successful completion of the unit, students will be able to:

  1. apply theoretical methods in the creation of a piece of theatre;
  2. utilise a range of physical skills in performance;
  3. explain the technical elements of theatre and how they contribute to the aesthetic of the performance;
  4. develop and refine strategies for the maintenance of the performance through a performance season;
  5. conceptualise and articulate, the imaginative basis and developmental processes of an original piece of theatre work.
