MA in Digital Performance

School of Arts
Brunel University
West London

Course Convener: Paul Verity Smith

This is a distinctive and unique interdisciplinary program focused on
industry graduate needs, and involves collaboration between the School of
Arts and the School of Engineering and Design. It centers on the integration
of creative arts with science and technology to develop students’ skills to
advanced levels and to equip them with the expertise to contribute to, as
well as respond to, the rapidly changing requirements of the creative,
broadcast and communication industries. Drawing on significant academic,
creative and technological strengths from both Schools, the program’s high
degree of currency and interdisciplinarity, as well as its emphasis on
employability, will be highly attractive to students. The teaching team
includes: Steve Dixon, Johannes Birringer, Stelarc, Sue Broadhurst, Gretchen
Schiller, Paul Verity Smith, and Kjell Petersen.

The program is designed to educate and train multi-skilled
artist-technicians, enabling them to adapt their techniques to different
art, entertainment and media forms. A clear skill gap has been identified
within the theatre, broadcast and communication industries (as well as in
the art gallery sector) for expert and creative technicians who are not only
able to realize directors/artists’ ambitions for highly technological films
and broadcasts, theatre/dance performances, animations, music compositions,
and installations, but also to pro-actively collaborate and artistically
contribute to them. Graduates will also be initiators and producers of their
own original work across a range of electronic arts and performance, as well
as participating in the development of new modes of cultural and artistic
practices. The program incorporates development of business, production and
entrepreneurial skills, recognizing the demands for multi-skilled and
collaborative approaches in the industry.
