Bc.Authorial Acting

The study of acting not in the sense of interpreting an assigned role, but in the authorial sense, i.e. students` education towards a creative personality capable of standing behind their authorial works, to personally present and develop them in a dialogue with the environment into which they enter. Authorship here is thus not understood only as the production of artefacts, but as every original creative activity which occurs in a common space and which in consequence - intentionally or otherwise - transforms this space; the personality should thus warrant personally for its actions, bear the responsibility. And it should also be in sufficiently good condition for them, because existing in a common space places significant psychosomatic demands on every person. For this reason, the study of acting with a focus on authorial creation and pedagogy is based on acquiring experience in the main dimensions of human expression: education in voice, speech, movement and dialogic conduct. The theoretical subjects are selected so as to provide reflection and a broader horizon to these skills, or rather abilities.

Graduate profile

Because the goal of the programme is to cultivate a self-confident, creative personality, the graduates` profiles and employment can be - and tend to be - very diverse. Most commonly, graduates apply their skills in so-called assisting and pedagogical professions of variegated specialisations, but also as authors of their own projects of a theatrical, visual, literary or other nature, or work in the media sphere (moderators, script writers, etc.).
