O que eu aprenderei?

The way theatre works as an industry and who it speaks to and for is changing and actor training programmes need to reflect this. No longer can actors be trained to be a blank canvas to create another’s reality, rather they must be creative artists who bring themselves, their experience, their culture and their perspective to their work. That’s how we will achieve genuine diversity and change. Students joining the course will be part of that change.

The concept is that students work in an ensemble – a training company – and have an input into how that company is run. In the first year you explore acting skills with an emphasis on practice that encourages the development of the actor as creative artist; Michael Chekov, Vakhtangov, Laban and Meyerhold. We also have an international partnership with the Boris Shchukin Theatre Institute in Moscow, which was the Moscow Art Theatre’s Third Studio and you will, international circumstances permitting, be able to study a module in Russia, working with tutors there at one of the world’s most famous centres of actor training.

The second year is all about productions, including a TV production and a London agent’s showcase and it is in this year that the course really benefits from its partnership with the Tobacco Factory Theatres. The course will be a resident acting company in training at the theatre; the first of its kind in the country.


The BA (Hons) Acting for Stage and Screen programme will give you the in-depth training required to be a professional actor and a creative artist. The core of the course is two years of acting classes based on the approaches of Michael Chekov, Vakhtangov, Laban and Anne Bogart. Acting class is closely aligned with a combined voice and movement class, exploring how these instruments work together, to create truthful characters, in whom the physical is finely attuned to the psychological.

Programme modules cover acting techniques, the connection of physicality and voice, ensemble theatre, text analysis, comedy character development, the actor as theatre-maker and acting for camera techniques.

You will appear in 5 professionally produced productions working as part of an “acting company in training” based at the Tobacco Factory Theatres in Bristol as well as a full-length TV production and an agents’ showcase in London. You will also spend around 5 weeks in Moscow taking a module in Vakhtangov technique at the prestigious Shchukin Theatre Institute.
