Program Overview

Program Description:
This three-year Bologna compliant UK validated degree is designed to provide the highest quality vocational education and training. The programme has a high staff/student contact time and is intensively delivered and provide the unique opportunity for collaboration across disciplines. The programme involves rigorous and practical professional training, business and entrepreneurial development, and historical and conceptual studies. All students whether on stage, backstage or behind the camera will be involved in a large number of production projects. On completion of the programme, students will be fully prepared to find and make work in the media and performing arts.

Year 1 Most classes are technical with occasional internal performance projects. Working mostly in small groups or pairs, students develop and begin to synthesize the different aspects of their training. As the year progresses, the focus shifts to more extended project-based work and it culminates with a full-length chamber production of a modern, realistic play. Year 2 Students engage more deeply with a wider range of texts, performance styles and media. The idea of The Ensemble is introduced and in larger groups, students apply the skills they have developed to a series of performance projects. The year ends with a fully-supported public theatre production. Year 3 Our students become a company of actors. They are cast throughout the year by visiting professional directors in a full season of live and recorded public productions. These could be theatre-based, site-specific, touring, radio plays or films. They also produce a performance-based research project and take part in our annual international showcase events.

Setting Description:
The Institute is housed in a unique and stunning building with a fascinating past – the building was designed and purpose-built by Audi, with creativity in mind, as their European design headquarters. Our extensive refurbishment programme has harnessed the building’s creative potential, giving our students access to state-of-the-art facilities that include a 200-seat theatre, world-class dance studios, rehearsal studios, music practice rooms, and a library – not to mention an onsite café with social spaces. Situated half an hour from the centre of Barcelona, Sitges is one of Spain's jewels. Originally a small fishing village, in the 19th century it became a centre for counter-culture and the arts. Sitges has the largest street carnival in mainland Europe (as well as numerous other festivals), is home to a major international film festival and has five substantial museums and galleries. It is a modern and exciting town with an excellent nightlife, but retains much of its original charm
