Technologies related to gaming, augmented and virtual realities have transformed the creative possibilities of all of the performing arts. This is as true for large-scale mainstream music concerts or theatre and dance productions through to more experimental music and performance artists.
The growth of importance of these technologies cannot be overstated in terms of creative innovation as well as economic and employment growth. The Digital Creative is an area of noted importance of economic investment and growth on Regional (North West) National and Global levels.
The programme of study will explore interactive and immersive digital programming environments and appropriate design techniques and their truly transformative effect upon all of the performing arts.
Students will be supported in the realisation of advanced projects such as digital scenography, interactive audio/visual projections, all of which will incorporate Game, Augmented, or Virtual Reality techniques – technologies that are transforming the way that we envision, create, perform and consume the performative arts.
This new programme could be partnered with another performing art – dance, music or drama – or subjects such as computer science or Artificial Intelligence, to make a truly innovative study experience.For more details and information about this course visit:
