After successfully completing your foundation year, you take a linear program of lessons up to the start of your third year, focusing on the above elements.
In your third and fourth years, there are program-specific workshops on physical theatre, experiential theatre, and community arts. You direct, perform, and give lessons. There are workshops on writing your own scripts and scenarios, and on directing and performing them.
In the area of professional theory, you have lessons in the history of directing and the development of concepts, and you write an essay.
You also develop your own approach to processes of change within the profession, for example the introduction of Culture & the Arts subjects in education.
We set out an individual program 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.
