General presentation

The Master programme places the actor at the centre of artistic creation as author, creator and performer. The training is modularly structured and consists of workshops, seminars and courses. The training offer allows students to develop their expressive skills in composition and theatre creation in order to strengthen their inclination towards self-criticism and reflection. The Master is part of the Master Campus Theatre CH, in which the Swiss Universities of Applied Sciences of Theatre meet in cooperation.

During the first two semesters the Master’s programme offers seminars, workshops and courses that investigate different aspects of creation in the Physical Theater, namely dramaturgy, composition, theory, philosophy, theatre history and project management. This is complemented by regular training in acting and movement.

In order to facilitate greater interaction between the participants the theoretical and practical lessons take place in small groups. Students, in addition to the common courses held in Verscio, can also take advantage of the training offered by the theatre schools that meet in the Master Campus Theater CH.
