Do you dream of a career working in performing arts?
The nature of professional practice in performing arts, and the shape of performing arts careers, are both changing as the industry responds to opportunities and challenges presented by a dynamic arts landscape and new technologies. The most successful performers have a broad skill set and an appetite to co-develop their own work.
Join us for our new Performing Arts Futures Day! We are delighted that actor and teacher, Christopher Simpson
, as seen in Brick Lane
, will be leading a practical skills workshop for us during the day. Christopher teaches acting methods within a wide-ranging creative practice. He has worked in theatre, film and television. His teaching addresses psychological realism, acting on camera, movement psychology, and mask.
During the day, we’ll be considering how practitioners engage with performing arts in the 21st
Century, what modern performing arts careers look like, and what skills or aptitudes are needed for success.
Christopher Simpson will deliver practical skills sessions, and you'll discover how the BA (Hons) Performing Arts course at HCA prepares you for your professional future. The day will also provide an opportunity for you to present prepared performance material in a supportive environment, and receive feedback from industry professionals.
