Theatre and performance space

The School of Arts has its own dedicated theatre space. The ground floor room in 43 Gordon Square has been adapted and refurbished to provide a well-equipped practice room for up to 30 students. Its floor is covered with a high quality cushioned dance floor and from its ceiling hangs a state-of the-art lighting rig. A second room houses the collection of costumes and theatre programmes and provides a viewing room for the collection of theatre DVDs.

Not only does the room allow theatre students to enjoy practical classes and to mount pieces of performance as part of their studies, it also offers a space for the Centre for Contemporary Theatre’s associated practicing professional artists to run workshops and develop their work.

The room was officially launched on Wednesday 22 May 2014, as part of the theatre-focussed events happening throughout Arts Week 2014. Arts Week events included several public performances in the new room, opening it to the public for the first time.
