Expertly crafted for artists on the verge of a new theatre career, the American Course at GITIS immerses actors, directors and designers in a collaborative and cross-disciplinary training program. The eleven-week intensive engages students to crystallize their own craft and to develop a hands-on understanding of the other fields. Students pursue practical studies in their chosen discipline at The Russian Academy of Theatre Arts–GITIS, Russia's oldest and largest theatre school. A collection of Russia's leading theatre masters provide students with advanced training in Russian theatre techniques (Stanislavsky, M. Chekhov, Meyerhold) and guide students in applying and adapting these techniques to create modern theatre in cooperation with their fellows. Students have exclusive access to Moscow's most celebrated directors with the opportunity to attend their master's classes, observe their professional rehearsals, and preview performances of their productions. This intensive is ideal for theatre artists at the beginning of their career seeking graduate level training.
