Authorial Acting

Geared for individuals who want to conceive and perform their own solo and group performances, the program in Authorial Acting develops the knowledge, skills and capabilities needed to discover and develop personal themes and cultivate the expressive means for articulating them. Careful attention is given to fundamental dramatic principles, like play and improvisation, as well as the anthropological and philosophical aspects of creativity. Acting and performance are studied in a multidisciplinary manner as creative public behaviour.

Directing for Devised and Object Theatre 

The program offers advanced studies in the practice of theatre-making with a twofold focus: learning the process of devising a theatre performance from scratch, with a strong emphasis on a visuality of expression.
Students will learn to create theatre performances with strong visual, spatial, object and media (low tech) aspects, as well as working in other related performance forms such as scenographic installations, sound performances, and other types of performances with strong visual and spatial dramaturgy.
