Our Theatre and Performance program enjoys a reputation as one of the most outstanding and comprehensive courses of its kind in any Australian university The degrees offered by CTP explore theatre and performance in theory and practice, balancing performance opportunities with a challenging academic program. We have two strands, one aims to create theatre-makers and the other explores different historical and contemporary performance traditions and practices. In both we focus on the study of the past, present and future of the performance.
