The Performance Arts exams are designed for learners who want to engage with diverse and contemporary theatre-making.
In pairs, groups or as solo performers, candidates demonstrate their skills in the imaginative and creative exploration and integration of different performance forms and materials.
These exams provide the opportunity to create performances that have personal meaning. This can range from spoken word such as comedy routines, acting or prose reading, to physical theatre such as folk and traditional dance, improvisation, puppetry or mime. Candidates can also explore opportunities provided by recorded media, such as screening and talking about a film they have made. Furthermore, candidates can explore complementary performance skills such as costume-making, lighting, set and audio design.
“The Performance Arts syllabus allows a student to create a programme of work that matches their personality. It allows them to express themselves, and it really suits people who enjoy a wide variety of performance skills.”
Mollie Guilfoyle, Trinity Examiner
