THE BRIEF As an artist you will be expected to work effectively with others in
THE BRIEF
As an artist you will be expected to work effectively with others in a team and company settings to achieve a common aim. This process will
give you the opportunity to work as part of a larger ensemble company to devise a piece of live music whilst also developing your
teambuilding and communication skills. It is essential to the overall outcome that you demonstrate the ability to work as a collective to deliver
a shared intention.
It is important that you are able to look beyond the obvious and fully explore any given stimulus. You will work as an ensemble company and
explore music as an art form, using existing music as a stimulus. The piece will be highly dynamic. It is to be performed to an invited
audience and make use of Level 2 musicians. You should gain an understanding of the key behaviours and attitudes required in order to
rehearse, communicate, cooperate and put out a professional music piece.
You should make sure you write notes throughout rehearsals ensuring you record detailed peer and directors’ feedback. Your journey and
personal development is vital, so it is important that you don’t just write a timetable of what you have done, but continuously be analysing
your own and others performance throughout.
You will also be taking part in a variety of group discussions, sharing and discussing and this will contribute to your functional skills and
individual course requirements.
Professional Practice: Please be aware that you will be putting professional practice into action within The Miskin Theatre, which is a
publicly licensed professional environment in which you are effectively an intern being given the opportunity to publicly test your skills and
gain creditable industrial experience.
