CAO minimum entry points: N/A - This programme is being offered for the first time in 2015 so no previous CAO point level exists Programme description: This new undergraduate programme (level 8) deals with an area of drama and theatre education not currently catered for at third level in Ireland. Applied theatre is considered to be the study of drama and theatre across a range of practical applications and non-traditional settings, including but not defined by stage performance or the study of literary texts. Contemporary theatre signals that the programme will deal largely with current and emergent modes of theatrical production and reception. This programme will seek to articulate the contemporary, varied and ever-changing roles of theatre and its practitioners in society. At its heart will be the concept of ensemble, which loosely defined, values and emphasises the importance of the practice of the collective. The idea of a working in a pro-social manner in theatre will also be core to this programme. This highlights engagement with specific sites and audiences, and with the idea that theatre has a core societal function and exists not only as entertainment. This programme will be offered in close association with the Lime Tree Theatre, which is located on the College campus, and which has hosted over 100,000 patrons since opening as a professional venue in October 2012. Through our relationship with the Lime Tree, students on the programme will be exposed to the best local, national and international practice through visiting companies, festivals, etc., and from the input of a range of visiting lecturers and practitioners.
