Performance at Falmouth draws on a rich and prestigious history of innovative, socially engaged and professionally ambitious research, teaching and practice.
With programmes in Dance, Music, Theatre and Production, we offer students a versatile and culturally informed education through a range of contemporary performance specialisms; from Popular Music to Dance and Choreography, Music Theatre to Creative Music Technology.
Our approach is practice-led, critically rigorous, and focused always on supporting students in developing a purposeful and fulfilling professional life that is culturally and economically sustainable.
Our programmes are primarily based in The Performance Centre, regarded by many as one of the finest resources of its kind in Europe and providing a dynamic and creatively enriching base for our performance activities. It also houses our year-round contemporary performance programme, which sees a range of nationally and internationally celebrated performers, groups and companies present their work.
Teaching through lectures, seminars, workshops, and interdisciplinary projects, our performance staff – all professionally active in their field – includes high-ranking scholars and award-winning practitioners. Their work is complemented by a regular programme of visiting lecturers and speakers, many of whom are internationally celebrated pioneers of contemporary performance. We look forward to welcoming committed, ambitious and open-minded new students to our community.
