Msc.Authorial Acting

The study of acting not in the classical sense of interpreting an assigned role, but in the authorial sense. The student is guided to become a creative personality capable of guaranteeing her/his authorial work. The student personally presents and develops the work in a dialogue with the environment into which it enters. Authorship is not understood as a mere production of artefacts but as any original creative activity which occurs in a public space and which in consequence - intentionally or otherwise - transforms this space; the individual should thus warrant personally for his/her actions and bear the responsibility. This requires a specific condition because existing in a public 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 dialogical 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, from crhes to universities, often as lecturers in psychosomatic disciplines. They also apply their skills as authors of their own projects of a theatrical, visual, literary or other nature, or work in the media sphere (moderators, script writers, etc.).
