BPA (4 years)The undergraduate course will prepare the student with a strong base in the theories of performance, the nuances of the classical, folk and contemporary arts, the rudiments of production and presentation along with rigorous insight into the field of specialisation viz: Dance (classical/contemporary) or Music Studies(Classical/modern) or Theatre Arts(classical & experimental). They will be exposed to the practical and theoretical practices of performance and introduced to literary, historical, traditional and cultural explorations of performing arts across cultures. As an extension of the learning received during the current crisis, the students will also be taught the use and control of digital media to promote and present the performing arts.
MPA (2 years)The master’s program builds into the project and research-based inquiry of the subject and prepares the student to emerge an expert in the interdisciplinary application and negotiation of the knowledge of performing arts to negotiate and mould social and cultural behaviours. They will also engage in a largely project-based study of the implementation of these learnings and produce research studies on the impact of the performing arts on history and technology. The program is largely oriented towards producing cultural administrators.
Chath Piersath - Everything around you can use. It's like your tools and your material. Whether it's in performing arts like dance, or visual arts, or poetry, a lot of those elements can come and help you, can trigger your creativity. But you have to be open, be aware, and you have to be ready to look.
