Bachelor’s Degree

The Performing Arts (THEATRE DIRECTING) program offers students the ability to discover and develop individual skills in a wide range of performative styles and languages. The creative understanding of the director’s art from a theoretical and practical perspective aims at educating the ability to individually select and assess the specific elements to the theatrical act. The process of discovery and development of the directorial personality requires work in knowledge and self‑knowledge, exploration and experiment within a multidisciplinary artistic and technical team. This is why the abilities, skills and also the first experiences are developed at school. Thus, graduates of Theatre Directing obtain a fairly close perspective on their future artistic projects in the professional environment.
