Try Theatre Studies is designed to give students interested in theatre or drama an opportunity to explore whether doing a degree in the area is the right choice for them.

About the event

The event is a short, sharp two hour workshop which will explore how a performer considers and creates a character from a pre-existing text. Participants will do warm up, lead in and main work considering possible choices relating to costume, physicality, voice, history, motivation and subtext in relation to creating a character physically and psychologically. The workshop is structured to suit both those with some theatre experience or none at all and all are welcome to participate.

About Theatre Studies

Theatre Studies is offered as a subject on WIT’s flagship Arts degree, the Bachelor of Arts (Hons). This is the first course of this kind in the South‐East and is unique to WIT. The course will introduce students to the practice and performance of theatre as well as to the academic study of the area.  Students will study major plays from Ireland and abroad but also will have the opportunity to participate in workshops where they can act, direct, and produce their own work as well as the work of major playwrights. The emphasis in the course is on practical application and the course will offer to students the opportunity to work within a “studio” environment. The course builds on strong partnerships with local and regional theatre groups who have all lent their support to the development. Click for more information on Theatre Studies.

The event will be facilitated by Dr Una Kealy and Dr Kate McCarthy.
