The degree programme is a specialised study curriculum aimed at people from a wide range of Theater disciplines and leads to a Master’s Degree in Theater - Expanded Theater in three semesters. During the programme artists from different performative disciplines learn and work together: actors, dancers, performers, puppetry performers and others.
The Master Theater is a laboratory in which different Theater practices are examined and investigated. The students deal with an advanced understanding of Theater that goes beyond the borders of any particular discipline. This not only applies to contemporary forms of Theater performances but also to the development and implementation of new visions.
The open curriculum and the possibility to individually shape the programme gives students an opportunity to develop their personal approach, style and aesthetic to Theater. They define their core area and decide on the subjects, topics and issues they want to engage in. Our ambition is to encourage the students’ individual creativity and artistic authorship.
The main educational focus is on artistic practice. A project-oriented approach and working on the independent self-creative power are central elements of the programme. Moreover, it is possible to intensely devote ones studies to solely theoretical aspects, whereby performative practice is integrated as an experimental design. This is of particular interest to students who want to pursue further studies in applied research.
The degree programme is made up of 90 ECTS points and is normally completed in three, maximum five semesters.
When you start the master’s degree programme you will have basic representation skills in areas such as acting, dance, performance or any other related discipline.
