Digital showcase

In place of our regular live showcase, we have brought together a Digital Showcase to feature the skills and talents of our graduating year. 

Here you can explore Ahmed Elhaj’s digital showreel, which includes theatrical and screen scenes, self-created work made during the Covid-19 lockdown and audio reel. A short film written and directed by professional film-makers is currently being edited and will be added shortly.

Self-created work

Across the 12-week period of lockdown, all graduating students on the two year and three year acting courses collaborated with a dramaturg to develop and create their own self-created piece.

The BA (Hons) Acting students were given the brief to create a series of ‘encounters’ in the East Wing that celebrate the individual creativity of each graduating student. Made over 12 weeks, with dramaturgical and creative assistance from Tatty Hennessy and Matt Hassall.
