The Institute of Performance provides a base for all postgraduate research and training at GSA.
This includes a comprehensive calendar of events as well as bespoke training sessions on academic skills and informal research development opportunities, offering postgraduates a dynamic and supportive research environment.
We welcome applications for both practice-led and more 'traditional' forms of postgraduate research in any of our research areas across all types of performance including:
- Live art
- Site-specific performance
- Experimental theatre
- Interdisciplinary practices
- Intercultural performance
- Popular performance
- Performer training
Our facilities include a 200-seat theatre, 15 rehearsal-studios, 6 performance-studios, an art gallery, design studio, digital media labs, and high-quality recording facilities. The University of Surrey library also hosts the long-standing and internationally renowned National Resource Centre for Dance.
