Guildhall School of Music and Drama

The Guildhall School is one of the world’s leading conservatoires and drama schools, offering inspiring professional training in the performing arts. Situated in the heart of the City of London, it has over 900 students in higher education, drawn from nearly 60 countries around the world.

The Guildhall School’s Technical Theatre department has long been recognised as providing some of the most innovative vocational theatre training in the UK and beyond.

The MA in Collaborative Theatre Production & Design is a one-year Masters programme which brings together early-career theatre practitioners from diverse fields including designers of scenery, costume, lighting, sound and video as well as directors, stage managers and production managers.

These practitioners work together in creative teams on an exciting and varied array of theatre projects. The programme develops the students ‘theatre-making’ abilities, exploring their potential as creative artists. At the heart of this programme is Collaborative Practice. Throughout the year there are four projects, some of which are generated from within the creative teams, while others involve collaborating with other artists.

The programme includes a four-week residential project at the centre de création which is intended to take students into an unfamiliar area of work and offer an opportunity for creative collaboration unconstrained by preconceptions or prejudices, culminating in a devised piece as a tribute to physical theatre and circus skills.

Playtime: Silent comedy is a style of film, related to but distinct from mime, invented to bring comedy into the medium of film in the silent film era. This is a tribute to the era’s use of physical theatre and circus skills.
