Students from the School of Creative and Performing Arts will come together for a very special production of the Broadway musical Cabaret.
The collaborative production will bring together students from across a range of disciplines and provide opportunities to put learnings in to real-world practice.
Auditions have been held to find a cast of students who can perform, and a call has been put out for visual arts students to try their hand at set design.
This exciting production will be a first for the new-look Creative Campus, with the musical performed on site, and rehearsals and preparations taking place in the state-of-the-art studios.
The musical gives Dance, Drama, Design, Fine Art, Music, Graphics and Film students the chance to showcase the theories of their subject disciplines through an original production.
Cait Lloyd, who is studying MA Performance, said: “I think the wide open space they have created in the Capstone Building ground floor will encourage new kinds of events down here at Creative, which is really exciting. The communal area really mirrors the community we have here as an open, welcoming and connected campus, where everyone knows everyone. I can't wait to see how this space develops over the next year.”
Collaboration, creative diversity and interdisciplinary practice is at the core of teaching at the School of Creative and Performing Arts, and the new Arts Centre and Design studios aim to further this style of learning.
