The MA TPP is an intensive exploration of the possible futures of performance. This year, there will be a particular emphasis on how practices of embodied difference can contribute to advancing theory, practice, and praxis. Thesis possibilities include process-based and product-based models of experimental making and doing; new forms of social engagement through performance; and alternative-format blended writing and practice.

The MATPP at UCC is located in the artistically dynamic city of Cork, Ireland – the city of its size with one of the highest densities of cultural activity in Europe.

The deadline for applications is 30 June 2020. University College Cork will be commencing the academic year on 28 September, 2020 this year.
