Training Opportunity

European Theatre Arts (Training the Contemporary Performer) BA (Hons)

At the heart of the European Theatre Arts programme is the notion of the crossing of boundaries. You will be training in European theatre practice and investigating not only the role of the performer, but also the part played by the director, playwright and designer. You will study these practices in a variety of historical and socio-cultural European contexts, and you will spend part of the programme abroad studying at another European institution of theatre training.

Crossing the boundaries between theatrical vocations, cultures, countries and languages, the European Theatre Arts programme offers you a comprehensive understanding of all processes of theatre making and how they are shaped by the specific cultural context in which they occur.

ETA graduates continue to produce work at a range of festivals, including Edinburgh, Prague and Brighton Fringes. Other destinations include directing, writing, teaching, establishing theatre venues, producing and more.
