"This creative approach is guaranteed to give you a different perspective on what is going on behind the facade of normal we often see in others, as we delve into passions, delights, fears, desires and frustrations on a journey to find the individual talents that lie within each of us.

"Performances form such an essential part of their training," she said. "The second-year projects are each designed to give students a real experience of what it's like to work with a production team to put on a show to industry standards.

"The physical demands it places on the actors is quite challenging and an exciting part of the project. My co-director Ella Hetherington is such an exciting physical theatre practitioner to work with."
