The Times Good University Guide 2022

We focus on developing students’ knowledge and expertise, both practical and theoretical, about performance, its histories, how it intervenes in the present, and how these things might affect the future.

We’re not tied to rigid definitions of performance, and investigate how it can be used in different settings – theatres, art galleries and museums, schools, prisons, warehouses, and the street – in the UK and internationally.

My course at Queen Mary has allowed myself to become an independent artist, exposing me to new arts and ways of creating.
