Professional Studies

The Professional Studies are open to people over 18 years old. The training is intensive: Monday through Friday, four hours a day are dedicated to the learning of drama. The learning process is based on the “Movement” and the game of improvisation and its rules.

The Program

The program is a 2 year course. Each year teaches a complete curriculum of performance skills and continues development of previous study – making for a coherent and progressive study programme. It encourages use of keen observational skills and documentation. There is freedom to imagine, but always with consideration towards the necessary technique and intensive work .

Each week the students are set a devised task to develop in small groups. This weekly process culminates in a performance for the rest of the teaching team as well as fellow students of the school. The themes of these short devised performances are closely tied to the lessons that week, thus facilitating practise of the newly acquired techniques and providing stimulation for the student’s imagination.

These performances are shown to the public periodically throughout the year, giving students a chance to see the learning process and development.
