Each student will keep an individual research log, which will evidence their participation in the group’s research process. This will include informal reflections on key sources, methodologies, and observations/interactions with the Company. One departmental visit will take place in the autumn term to a London venue to see the work of a company working integrally with the idea of the ensemble, or for whom ensemble training is a core process. Students will be asked to write a 1000 word essay analysing the show and drawing on the language of Performance Analysis and Ensemble Practice, which are introduced and explained in the seminar discussions.
