Theatre - Working with others

Corridor 49Theatre students at York St John have the opportunity to work with a wide range of people during the three years of the programme. The different interactions that students can have with individuals and organisation will vary depending on the particular pathway of modules that are selected. This could involve professional links with the York Theatre Royalschools and colleges in the local area as well as projects working with a wide range of voluntary groups and cultural organisations in the City and region. In the past, Theatre students and Fine Arts, Dance and Music students  have worked with the York Museums Trust curatorial staff to develop a large scale performance event as part of the international Constantine The Great Exhibition.


Graduate Enterprise Support for Theatre Makers

ConvergeThe Faculty was also very proud that Dr Nick Rowe and a graduate Theatre student, Gemma Aldred won the Higher Education Social Entrepreneurship Award for setting up a new theatre company called 'Out of Character', where YSJU students and external participants, who are  health service users, collaborate on the making of theatre productions. ln 2009 Out of Character were directed by the Associate artistic Director of the York Theatre Royal in a sell out show based on the works of Frank Kafka. Their social enterprise project Converge aims to open up workshops classes in music, dance and creative writing giving York St John Faculty students a real opportunity to work with York based community groups where the arts act as a powerful motivating force.
