"Performance… is rehearsal for a good death."
Karmenlara Ely, Artistic Director at NTA
At NTA, we educate acting and scenography students in contemporary theatre from the undergraduate to post-graduate levels. Students work closely together to generate new original works informed by compositional strategies found in theatre, music and architecture. Our practices are based in research, in seeking relationships and potentials produced by theatre and in investigating how performance can engage in both a space and the public via the senses while simultaneously stimulating critical discourse and thought. For almost 20 years the education has invited groundtaking international guests artists to create unique projects in conjunction with students.
