Guildhall School of Music & Drama: Collaborative Theatre Production and Design

InstitutionGuildhall School of Music & Drama View institution profile
Department Technical Theatre Arts
Study type Taught


This one-year Masters programme aims to bring together early-career theatre practitioners, including Designers, Sound Designers, Lighting Designers, Production Managers, Stage Managers and Video Designers. These practitioners work together in creative teams on an exciting and varied array of theatre projects.

At the heart of this programme is Collaborative Practice, which aims to develop your ability to apply and integrate your specialist skills within a project. The timing and emphasis of these different projects will reflect the timing and emphasis of the various roles in the creative team. Over the year, the teams on your course will form and re-form, developing a creative vocabulary on a broad variety of projects and forging connections with other artists.

The programme also includes a three-to-four-week residential project, intended to take you into an unfamiliar area of work. The idea is to offer an opportunity for creative collaboration unconstrained by preconceptions or prejudices. In 2016 and 2017 this culminated in 'Playtime', a devised piece created over three weeks at the Centre de Creation in France as a tribute to physical theatre and circus skills.
