    London/Culture/Performance is an introductory core module for all Drama students. It has three key aims: 1. To equip you with skills for analysing performance (as distinct from written text) (keyword: performance); 2. To facilitate your critical and productive engagement with London and the vast cultural resources and history it has to offer (keyword: London); 3. To introduce you to some current issues in cultural politics and critical ways of approaching them (keyword: culture). These skills are fundamental to the university-level study of Drama in London and will serve you throughout your Drama degree and beyond. Module activities will include: fieldwork at various sites around London; attendance at and critical response to performances and events; seminar-based discussion; seminar preparation that is not supervised by staff, including independent fieldwork and research; seminar presentations; and critical writing. You will be expected to participate constructively in seminars, to come to class fully prepared, and to complete all fieldwork exercises. This module provides an excellent opportunity for you to explore the performance resources available in London and to develop your skills in using, understanding and responding critically to them.
