Film, Theatre and Television
Course title: Spaces of Performance and Production
An international summer school in film, theatre and television
Film, Theatre & Television at the University of Reading is a long-established department with a strong tradition of critical inquiry through practical work. Teaching and research in the Department are concerned with the ways that ideas are embodied in performances and productions. The Summer School will draw on current research in the Department into the representation of space in films, television programmes and performances.
The two-week course is aimed at current undergraduates studying film and television, theatre and performance, or a related discipline. Working in groups and separately, students will gain practical skills and experience and an understanding of how critical inquiry can be pursued through creative practice. Students will develop skills in devising practical work, carrying out independent research and working across the mediums of film, television and theatre. The course is particularly appropriate for students intending to pursue postgraduate research through practice in the UK.
Students will receive hands-on tuition in small groups, as well as having occasional guest lectures, film screenings and visits to the theatre in London.
Who will be teaching you and how?
The course tutors are members of the department's vibrant postgraduate community, all teachers having a wealth of experience as practitioners and researchers. Senior members of the department's academic staff will lead occasional sessions, and technicians will support practical work.

The Department is located at the heart of the Whiteknights campus, close to all the University's facilities.
