From ritual to the RSC, theatre is the live embodiment of the human story, however it's told. At Goldsmiths we reflect our story and our contemporary world through the interdisciplinary and the intercultural. We explore what theatre and performance can tell us about the way we live now by drawing on everything from sociology to psychoanalysis and from politics to the playgrounds of the world. At postgraduate level, we offer eight innovative taught programmes and the MPhil/PhD. Our vibrant research culture embraces a wide range of global theory and practice in theatre and performance, ranging from play-texts and productions to physical practices and critical/cultural theory, on which students can draw in their own research.
