    Dartington College of Arts
  • About
    Inspiring and imaginative, the Theatre programme at Dartington is renowned for generating original, independent theatre makers. It encourages and enables innovative approaches to physically-based, ensemble collaboration. Practical and theoretical work focus on ways of generating and composing new material, and are informed by a concern for experiment, innovation and critical debate. Other core considerations include embodiment, spaces for performance, context, and systems of documentation and reflection.

    There is a network of regional, national and international projects, festivals and other opportunities in which to explore and apply your skills. You also have access to residencies and workshops with international artists.

    Dartington College of Arts is one of very few specialist arts colleges in the world to offer undergraduate and postgraduate degrees through distinctive practice-led learning methods across contemporary arts practices. Collaborative approaches to learning through making, managing and curating contemporary arts, enables specialist knowledge and skills to contribute to a dynamic, experimental and committed community of artists - students and staff. The Dartington community of learning encourages students from diverse backgrounds, different countries and with very varied aspirations to make the most of a curriculum which encourages independence in a supportive framework of learning.

    The College's work is organised through its fields of study: arts & cultural management, choreography, music, theatre, visual performance, writing. Each field provides activities in teaching, research, creative enterprise, widening participation and international development.
