Contemporary Performance Practice

If you have studied, or are considering studying, the unique Contemporary Performance Practice degree at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland then you might find yourself embarking on any number of diverse and creative areas of work. Within the world of Contemporary Performance, a career might see you working as a drama specialist, director, performer, producer or within educational theatre.


Contemporary Performance Network: In their own words, the Contemporary Performance Network is a resource and community organising tool for artists, scholars and audiences. The term Contemporary Performance is used to describe hybrid performance works and artists that travel between the fields of Experimental Theatre, Dance, Video Art, Visual Art, Music Composition and Performance Art without adhering to one specific field’s practice. This could be useful to students looking to network with fellow performers and find out about international opportunities.

Creative Scotland: Regularly posting opportunities ranging from jobs to workshops, this is a great way for performers to find out about what’s going on across Scotland and advertise their own work or advertise for spaces, people and equipement- for free. You can also find out more about applying for potential funding for your projects.
