Reflect critically upon the process and outcome of a practical group project
Through group practical work, video screenings, project specific research, and participation in the devising and presentation of a tutor led collaborative group performance project; the students are given the opportunity to engage and develop modes and strategies of practice appropriate to the development and realisation of ensemble performance material.
