Partnership with Wycombe Swan Theatre

Our performing arts and dance students already make use of the Wycombe Swan theatre for a variety of performances and dance activities.  The great news is we’re just about to see that partnership grow to the next level as the final touches are made to a new residency hire agreement.  From September 2015, The new agreementwill give us exclusive use of the Town Hall Venue and Oak Room, on Mondays and Tuesdays throughout the academic year.  This will really start to open up our opportunities for hosting public performances in a professionalvenue, as well as providing us with an alternative location for special classes and workshops.  Check out the virtual tour of the town hall and the swan venue itself here;

The above image is a photograph of The Doors, a telematic performance in which video and sound images from two different locations, Bucks New University and Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, are brought together in a single image. The Doors was presented as part of a day-long research symposium, The Spaces of Telematic Theatre, held on 19th September 2014, led by Julian Maynard-Smith of Station House Opera and Dr Jem Kelly, Senior Lecturer in Performing Arts at Bucks. Students from the BA Performing Arts performed throughout the day, their images telecast from High Wycombe to London, then superimposed onto various video projection surfaces at Central. This performance represents part of an ongoing research project into the application of new technologies to theatre, led by Jem in collaboration with Julian and Station House Opera.
