    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.
