Course Description

Theatre Performance Course

Kinsale College

Theatre Performance.

The Theatre Performance course provides a training in core performance skills. Classes and performances are centred in the college’s unique amphitheatre and well equipped studio. The teaching practice in Kinsale is underpinned by belief in an ensemble approach to theatre.

Classes are taught through practical workshop supported by discussion and reflection. The course focuses on developing expression in four key areas:

    • imaginative,
    • vocal, physical
    • emotional

Emphasis is placed on creating original work through improvisation, on exploring text and gaining experience of physical theatre practices.

Students also prepare for auditions. Throughout the year students have many performance opportunities, culminating in a large-scale public performance each May. Participants take a minimum 10 days of work experience in a suitable environment. All students will take place in a fully rehearsed public performance at the end of the year to fulfill this requirement.

Other Information
The course is taught by professional theatre artists working both, in Cork and nationally. It is designed to offer students the opportunity to explore and develop their creative expression within a group environment that is safe, supportive and fun. As well as promoting physical, imaginative and vocal development, drama improves self-confidence, communication, and group skills.

Kinsale College has a unique, specially designed and purpose built amphitheatre providing drama students with a perfect space for rehearsal and public performance. Students also perform, on occasion, in venues outside kinsale. In addition there are often opportunities to take productions on tour.

Links are maintained with the professional theatre, both through the permanent staff and by master classes, offered by visiting theatre professionals and course alumni in their areas of expertise.
