JMC's Diploma of Creative Arts (Acting) comprises the first two trimesters of our Degree program, providing an exit point for students wishing to develop the introductory skills of acting as a pathway for further learning.
The contemporary performing arts industry provides entry-level opportunities in the areas of community and fringe theatre, film and digital media and self-generated performance concepts. Fringe, community and cooperative theatre models are a significant component of the live performance industry. The presence of smaller and multipurpose performance venues has created a landscape of opportunity for small scale performances, projects and productions. New and emerging technologies provide greater accessibility to resources to create film and digital media content, whilst the emergence of online platforms have created new ways for an audience to interact with performance.
This course equips students with underpinning skills and knowledge to apply the foundation acting principles to a performance, to develop creative and collaborative performance concepts and provides the necessary educational and academic framework to enable further study.
