Program Overview

Program Description:
The Experimental Theatre Wing of the Department of Drama, Undergraduate, conducts the International Theatre Workshop (ITW) in Amsterdam. This seven-week intensive program is designed for serious acting students who seek to deepen their existing technique and be exposed to a wide range of approaches to live performance and the creation of original work. ITW students work in three studios in the newly renovated Theater Techniques Building of the Amsterdam School of the Arts.

Participants receive training in scene study (contemporary or classical), physically based acting (Viewpoints and early Grotowski), action-based script analysis, postmodern dance (technique, improvisation, and choreography), commedia, clowning, mask work, self-scripting and image-based original theatre, narrative acting (Brecht), street theatre, extended voice work (Roy Hart), and Shakespeare. The creation and showing of original work are integral to the program.

Costs include 8 credits, housing, and excursions. Students are placed in studio apartments managed by the Amsterdam School of the Arts. Each student has his/her own room in either a studio or a suite apartment, which is fully furnished and includes a kitchenette and bath.
Setting Description:
