At the heart of the European Theatre Arts programme is the notion of the crossing of boundaries. You will be training in European theatre practice and investigating not only the role of the performer, but also the part played by the director, playwright and designer. You will study these practices in a variety of historical and socio'cultural European contexts, and you will spend part of the programme abroad studying at another European institution of theatre training. You will not only be engaging with the work of practitioners who shaped 20th'Century theatre, but you will also be given the opportunity to experiment with new forms of theatre and develop research as practice. Not surprisingly, the emphasis is on innovative practices.
Year 1: workshops and performance on different dramatic texts an introduction to devised theatre; performance techniques in relation to critical theory; productions illuminating key periods of European theatre history; directing fundamentals (optional). Year 2: workshops and seminars on selected European practitioners; productions and seminars on texts from different European nations or regions; study in another European country; directing and designing European texts.
