Dramaturgy, Theatre history and Analysis, Cultural Criticism, Film Analysis, Theatrical World
Music, Singing, Speech, and Movement
You alternate between your main subject and projects; the latter culminate in a performance. Your progress, what you have learned, and the points you need to focus on are determined three times in the course of the year.
In your second year, you take a programme of lessons involving basic training in movement and voice. You finish off the basic programme in the theoretical subjects dramaturgy and cultural criticism, and you spend about half your main-subject time on text-based theatre, improvisation, and creating performances. In the workshops that begin halfway through the second year, you can choose from:
• classics from the Greek, German, and/or French repertoire
• psychological realism
• contemporary repertoire
• montage theatre/cross-over
• a 'free production'
• camera acting for television and/or film.
We set out an individual programme sequence for each student, taking into consideration your ambitions, specialties, and needs. Besides practical project lessons, the Academy has small-scale workshops on casting, grant applications, and specialisations such as writing for the theatre.
A small team of Academy instructors coach you and supervise your studies. Each student has a mentor. The mentors form core teams whose task it is to design, monitor, and evaluate the content of the curriculum. They consult with the many guest instructors, follow your development, and act as your bridge to the guest instructors, projects, and work placements.
