We are pleased to announce that the MA program in Authorial Acting at the Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague is currently accepting applications for the 2013/14 academic year.

The MA program in Authorial Acting, taught completely in English, develops a student's capacity to conceive and perform solo and collaborative performances. We study what it means to be an author and an actor – an authorial actor.

The program views acting and performance in a multidisciplinary manner as creative public behavior. This encompasses artistic performance, but students are also encouraged to go beyond traditional forms of performance and even go beyond the limitations of “artistic” performance as such, crossing boundaries and drawing on personal experiences in other fields like education, social work, psychology and the visual arts, in order to devise new creative spaces and situations where participants encounter vibrant themes.

We seek individuals with a distinct individual voice who are willing to take the risks involved in personal creative development, assume responsibility for the meaning and effect of what they share with others through performance, and can cooperate with others in developing creative communication in artistic fields and beyond.

To apply, students must have a B.A. or equivalent degree in theatre/performance or a related field.

The application deadline is April 30th, 2013.

For more information, please contact me or visit our website  www.damu.cz/international/copy_of_ma-programmes-in-english/authorial-acting.

Please share this information with anyone it may interest.  

Thank you.
