Master of Arts in Theatre

In a rich and challenging environment, the Master of Arts in Theatre at Accademia Dimitri is designed as a space for performance and artistic experimentation.


The program offers a wide range of approaches to theater and performance through the body and its expression. It is aimed at graduates of theater- and art-related degree programs and established artists who wish to enrich their skills, experiences and methodologies by developing new connections within their practice.


The training initially provides common instruction for all students, and then diversifies into three different focuses: Physical Theatre, Figure Theatre (material, object, and puppet theater), and Applied Theatre Practice.
