These courses offer specialist, vocational teaching in the field of movement for actors and production practice for movement directors. Bespoke movement placements at Central and in other professional theatre settings, such as other conservatoires, or theatre, opera or film organisations (both in Britain and internationally), are a key part of the course. There are opportunities for the development of individual movement specialisms and their application to the work of actors. Tradition, experience, eclecticism and innovation epitomise Central’s understanding of movement training for the theatre, and these unique courses have been created in that spirit. In the first year students of the MA and MFA combine for terms one to three. The MFA extends into a second year that involves workplace attachments, mentorship and practice. These courses capitalise on Central’s resources, innovations and history in the field of actor movement, both at postgraduate and undergraduate level. Students will belong to the fine history of movement at Central from Litz Pisk to the present. Student are provided with a rich and diverse landscape within which to address movement practices in relation to a wide range of established theatre processes and innovations in the field. Practical movement teaching and movement directing on selected projects offers a range of potential applications in the fields of theatre production, puppetry, animation, classical theatre, film acting, and contemporary and devised work.
