Devised Theatre and Performance MA/Certificate course (one year)

The Devised Theatre and Performance course (DTAP) prepares you for the challenging task of creating your own work. You will enhance your physical, emotional, imaginative and cognitive playfulness in order to be well equipped for the demanding journey of articulating, shaping and presenting your artistic visions. You will develop a better understanding of "the physical body you have, the subtle body you are, and the collective body we all have in common". The exploration of the dynamic relationships between these different bodies will provoke your physical and emotional imagination, creative intuition and personal playfulness, initiating awareness of what we call the Poetic Body. Awareness of this body lies at the very centre of LISPA's DTAP Course pedagogy, since accessing it is essential for the creation of new performance languages.

The Devised Theatre and Performance course can be taken as a whole full-time 32 week course, or over 2 or 3 years as individual 12-week Intensive Modules.

Masters Degree (MA)

Starting from September 2017, Rose Bruford College in London in partnership with LISPA now offers the DTAP course as a Masters degree (MA). If you would like to apply for the Masters degree option, please contact the school. Applications should be sent to LISPA in the first instance.
