The Acting programme consists of basic training lasting one and a half years during which you learn the basics of the profession. The workshops begin at the end of your second year.
Your first year starts with a Shakespeare project, together with students in the Directing, Theatre Design and Performance programmes. Periods follow in the course of the year during which you study your specific main subject, alternating with more general projects such as the theatrical column and making TV programmes.
The year is made up of 5 or 6 periods, each with a fixed lesson schedule of about 30 hours. Acting and staging projects always conclude with a presentation.
In your second year, you start with Musica Sacra. You are entirely free to create what you want, with whoever you want, but without the help of an instructor. Your sole obligation is that you present a performance, film, or installation at the end of the period. This period is the same for all students from the second year of the programme. After that, you can work together with students from other years and/or programmes. You then work on three projects that are specific to your own programme.
The workshops begin halfway through the second year, with students from the second, third, and fourth years working together. In consultation with your student counsellor, you choose from a range running from youth theatre to multimedia performances and from repertory theatre to experimental theatre. As an actor, you can also arrange to participate in a workshop for the Performance programme. Some workshops are specifically for a particular programme, some are as a co-production with a theatre company, and some are international.
In your third and fourth year, you work with guest directors and sometimes at work placement venues elsewhere.
