This unit requires students to work within a specific ensemble to realise a performance project through devising. Drawing on the learning from ACP324, student project teams will execute their proposed project from conception, research, planning and development, to presentation. Under staff supervision, ensembles will undertake micro-practice tasks to realise their performance vision within stringent industry standard parameters for time and resource management. Processes must include application of relevant principles of dramaturgy and the demonstration of an articulate vocabulary in devising, including research and development strategies, toward the realisation of their ideas as theatrical performance.

Teams will be required to ensure that appropriate attention is given to principles and practices of ensemble creation and ensemble management, as well as pre-production, production management, and the overall documentation of their creative project. Each student will submit an individual written critique of the specific and targeted professional learning they have achieved throughout the creative project.
