Norwegian Theatre Academy offers a research and study environment in performance, scenography and theatre in the expanded field. Students inquire into the intersections of art and society with internationally practicing guest artists and faculty. Values informing the education rely on listening, collaboration, staying with failure, re-imagining material relations, excavation and play.
«Scenografi betyr å iscenesette, det er å skape et tomrom og presist definere en åpenhet eller å lage et potensiale hvor ting kan utvikle seg.», sa professor Serge von Arx da han deltok i en debatt om arkitektur i regi av NRK.
Through her research Electa Behrens, associate professor of voice and acting at the Norwegian Theatre Academy, calls for a re-envisioning of traditional voice training, emphasizing that pedagogy needs to adapt to intra-cultural contexts.
Six individual MA Performance students will share part of phase one of their research, in a series of open events this fall.
NTA’s study plan for the MA Performance research project is organised as a series of public events happening between fall and spring of the second year of the course, organised in two phases, rather than a single final MA production.
* Please notice that two of the sharings are presented at Litteraturhuset, and the other four sharings are presented at Norwegian Theatre Academy. All of them in Fredrikstad.
