MA Site-Specific Theatre Practice Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts



Course info


Mountview’s MA in Site-Specific Theatre Practice is provided in partnership with Shoreditch Town Hall. The first course of its kind in the UK, the MA is created and led by Geraldine Pilgrim, a leading practitioner in the creation of site-specific theatre and installations.

The course is for students interested in highly specialised training across all elements of site-specific practice.

There are a maximum of seven students per cohort.

Site-specific theatre is a fast-growing art form that has captured the imagination of theatre and fine art practitioners throughout the UK and internationally. True site-specific theatre engages with a chosen site’s history, atmosphere and architecture to underpin devised or text-based narratives. Site-specific theatre is an art form in its own right, allowing a space to inform the final performance and acknowledging that the performance can only happen in the specific site.

The course is aimed at practitioners with an art or drama background wanting to diversify their artistic skills in the area of site-specific practice. Applications are welcomed from those with experience in the fine art, theatre or related industries as well as those currently studying at BA level.

What sets this course apart is that students will undertake a UK or overseas based residency to create a site-specific work.

Learning will cover practical skills and creative realisation as well as theoretical and methodological investigation.

Strong emphasis is placed on learning through practice. There is continuous assessment across all modules. Assessment is based on coursework covering the skills elements of the course and marking of practical work.
