The Programme in Acting is for students looking to develop as creative, broad minded actors, performers and co-creators within the performing arts field in Iceland and beyond. The programme offers rigorous technical training and creative challenges that prepare students to participate with confidence in the contemporary performing arts scene or continue their education on MA level. At the core of the programme is an appreciation of the creative power of the performer that transcends content and method. There are three key components to the studies, Acting/creating, Technique for actors and Theory. The aim of the programme is that students graduate with their individual handbook for acting that enables them to become the performing artists they choose to be.

Arts education provides the student with a good backpack for a long and unpredictable journey. It is important to take off with something to eat, the right kit and have a pretty good idea where your heading. 

The Acting Programme focuses precisely on this goal: to provide young artists with the neccessary skills to travel into the exciting landscape of the performing arts. The basic elements of acting studies are based on old traditions, but students are also introduced to fresh ideas and methods. While human nature doesn't change the "staging" of our excistence changes constantly.
