Program Overview

Program Description:

A creatively, physically and intellectually demanding one-year advanced level conservatoire classical acting programme, designed for students with previous experience and/or training. The course follows the development of the theatre from its earliest ritual roots to the birth of naturalism, and aims to hone individual’s technical acting craft within an ensemble.

This course draws on the influential theories and techniques of the great French acting teacher Michel Saint-Denis, training the expressive body, voice and imagination. Working with some of the greatest dramatic texts ever written students are asked to consider what they mean now.

Four key periods of innovation and transition in Western theatre are examined:

  • Greek Tragedy, Chorus and the Neutral Mask
  • Clowning and Commedia dell’arte
  • Shakespeare and the English Renaissance
  • Stanislavski, the Method and ‘Realist’ Theatre.

Students are encouraged to understand the demands of both art and craft, as participants in, and practitioners of, these theatrical traditions
