Programme director

The core of the programme is the artistic development of the theatre and performance maker. The focus is on students as authors developing an artistic vision and approach towards the medium, and the aim is that they become, at the end of the course, independent and creative theatre and performance makers. Students are introduced to different methods, ranging from traditional directing to contemporary theatre practices, with the aim of acquiring knowledge of the medium and its possibilities.
