The programs in Scenography and Costume Design at the Toneelacademie Maastricht start with their own foundation phases. The artistic, theoretical, technical, and design projects are given by a team of leading international professionals, who are firmly based in actual practice. There are also projects in which you work with students who are studying acting, performance, and directing. The first year also includes TV workshops and Technolab.
The two Bachelor’s degree programs share a number of subjects, for example dramaturgy, anatomy, drawing, and painting. If they wish, students can combine the two programs and take them concurrently.
The set and costume designs that students create are used in joint productions by the Toneelacademie Maastricht and the opera program of the Conservatorium Maastricht. We also work with other Dutch theaters, and with theaters in Aachen, Antwerp, Brussels, Bonn, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Heidelberg and Oldenburg. This not only enables us to bring students into contact with actual theatrical practice; it also allows us to bring the reality of the theater “business” and professionalism of the various ateliers to the Academy.
The programs in Theatrical Design and Costume Design are 4-year full-time day-time programs.
