The Future of Performer Training in the 21st Century
Two-day symposium at Coventry University that will interrogate the future of performer training, specifically within Higher Education. The focus will be on theatre and dance training and education.
Key practitioners and academics will provide some unique perspectives on the relationship between different forms of practice, theatre making and performer training, and on the rationales and purposes that might underpin such practices.
There will be opportunities to be involved before, during and after the event at Coventry – the aim of the event is to provoke action, collaboration, connection and change. We are looking to see what we might need to do in order to enable performer training to best respond to the challenges of the future.
