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.Crossing the boundaries between theatrical vocations, cultures, countries and languages, the European Theatre Arts programme offers you a comprehensive understanding of all processes of theatre making and how they are shaped by the specific cultural context in which they occur. The programme is founded on the belief that the study and experience of theatre in other cultures offers new and enlightening insights into one’s own theatrical practices and traditions. Not surprisingly, the emphasis is on innovative practices. 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.
