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.

Artistic Research

What NTA values most in the artistic research is the invitation to interfere with different knowledge systems. Artistic research processes value experimentation, juxtaposed relations, and live encounters as proven values for spending time and resources. This is an alternative to familiar modes of academic production. The act of critical reflection is therefore an essential part of our artistic research processes, where theory, expression, and other languages arise out of a myriad of mechanisms used to engage work.
