This course will educate students towards creating work that bridges the gap between traditional creative practices and their modern technologically facilitated counterparts from gaming, to graphic design to music and dance. It responds to the continuing appropriation of emerging digital technologies by artists with the aim of discovering new approaches for creative expression, often referred to under the umbrella term ‘Creative Convergence’. The course responds to the teaching and research interests of staff within the subjects of Music, Performance and Visual Arts, as well as colleagues in the areas related to Computer Science. You will learn how to use a variety of technologies and realise assessed projects; these may include motion capture, haptic feedback, interaction design, data sonification & visualisation, animation & sound design, and coding/scripting in relevant languages strictly for creative output. The practical seminars will act as laboratories to experiment with these technologies and enhance your skillsets, working towards a signature practice that primes them for the digital creative sector. The lectures provide a theoretical basis for you to critically position your work, further developed through student-led discussions in tutorials. The lecture content also informs the seminars, ensuring you are able to perceive the practical application of these ideas. In your first year of study, you will be introduced to the key practitioners and practices who demonstrate the ways digital technologies enrich the creative potential of traditional art forms.For more details and information about this course visit:
Study Dance in the heart of the city of Liverpool. Dance can be described as a fluid art form. It is constantly changing, exposed to different cultural contexts, bodily histories and physical disciplines, as well as being influenced by political and social movements. This degree aims to explore dance as a living practice and dynamic art form. You will consider how dance throughout eastern and western cultures has been cultivated through traditional training practices as well as more contemporary cultural influences.
Dance at Liverpool Hope looks at the bodies, techniques, performances and histories that make up dance practice today. The dance team are all professional practitioners and active researchers whose specialist skills map onto the diverse areas of dance history, dance technique, site-specific choreography, multicultural dance and somatic practice.
During your studies, you will have the opportunity to work alongside professional visiting choreographers and dance artists. You will perform for public audiences as well as develop a studio practice through one-to-one feedback and group seminars, including regular dance classes and workshops.
Here at Liverpool Hope we actively encourage students to consider their art form as an ethical and embodied practice, where we can confidently claim that dance is crucial to the worlds we decide to make.
