Central looks forward to hosting our annual party in Edinburgh for our students and alumni at the Fringe!
Students on these renowned Central courses create original theatre and performance, through innovative, interdisciplinary and collaborative practice. This year it has taken them from the depths of a crypt to the northern heights of Finnish theatre festivals, from London’s historical past to outer space.
Originally commissioned for the RSC's first season in 1961, John Whiting's dramatisation of Aldous Huxley's historical novel The Devils of Loudun was itself later adapted by Ken Russell into one of the most shocking and controversial films of the 1970s.
Lyrically following the story of Clara, a pregnant ex-banker jailed for fraud, and those she knows both in and out of prison, we are drawn into a justice system riven with injustice and a world where even well-meaning actions can have devastating consequences. Commissioned for and performed by MA Acting Contemporary students with Grace Savage.
Central will be holding auditions and interviews in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for its undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. NB these are now fully booked.
In a conversation with fellow designer Joanna Parker, Lizzie Clachan reflects on her performance design across theatre, opera and devised performance. Reflecting on the speculatively imagined spaces of the model and drawings as three-dimensional images that prefigure the work within the rehearsal, she offers a remarkable insight into her working process.
As part of its annual 25-year reunion series, Central is delighted to invite the class of 1992 to revisit the school.
For the second time, we will be hosting a 5-year reunion, in which we will be welcoming the Class of 2012 back to Central!
