A complete two-year graduate programme in Performing Arts is founded on a research-based approach. Through a teacher-student collaboration and a continuous knowledge sharing, students are encouraged to develop independence and artistic expression.
What sets this programme apart is the fact that it shapes actors and actresses into all-round authors who, by realising their ideas through various techniques and art forms, over the course of their two-year studies, develop a unique authorial expression, enabling them to engage audiences straight after graduation.
Another distinguishing feature of this programme is that it carefully prepares students for the international arena by using Lessac Kinesensic Training through which students master stage speech in English.
A wide range of competencies, experiences and interests of our teachers enables students to acquire different types of knowledge and various skills, and to deepen their understanding of acting in a wide variety of film, performance and new media practices. A broad scope of research and education comprises of a wide variety of topics ranging from activist, creative, hybrid, experimental and investigative documentary film and video; audio-visual art and media forms (i.e contemporary experimental, innovative and short films and their media hybrids and extensions); contemporary dance, performance art, hybrid post-dramatic forms, performance activism, interdisciplinary and new media practices.
Professional knowledge and skills acquired through this study program enable the MA graduates to: apply knowledge of different media that are potentially forms for the realisation of their ideas; apply knowledge of cultural management to ensure the production conditions within which the realisation of their ideas is possible; apply knowledge and self-organisational skills as well as realise their own authorial projects in which they can present themselves as authors and/or performers (actors), depending on circumstances.
All courses are semester-based, which allows increased mobility of students to other contents within the institution as well as to other study programmes abroad in shorter study visits.
In this two-year graduate study programme, students are awarded 120 ECTS credits. After completing the study programme, students acquire the academic title: Master of Acting.
