Degree programme specification

Applicants for studies in both specialisations prepare the assigned written papers, whose basis consists of a written analysis of a selected dramatic text and a professional reflection on a production they spectated – the assigned papers are then discussed with the committee. The supplied own original body of work and the level of applicants’ talent are also evaluated. The entrance interview strives to test the applicant’s motivations, their interest in theatre, knowledge of the field and cultural events in general. In entrance examinations, the applicant work with acting students on assigned stage etudes. Part of the admission procedure is to test the language skills of individual applicants, who must also pass a psychological personality test. The talent exam consists of two rounds.

Applicants apply for the follow-up master’s degree studies of Theatre Dramaturgy with a draft annotation of a master’s thesis and a graduation project.

Studies

  • Objectives

    DRAMA DIRECTION

    The basic objective of the master’s degree field of drama direction is to educate independent directors – artists who can create a special stage work on the basis of a dramatic text, but also on the basis of non-dramatic texts, in which they will apply their own artistic imagination and fantasy together with the ability to create – with the help of all components of theatrical synthesis – a structured stage shape striving for and leading to artistic expression. In both years, the studies are accompanied by lectures and seminars on new world drama and theatre, lectures or seminars on the theory of theatre and direction, as well as a seminar on working with verse or new media. This effort culminates in the staging of final projects.

    THEATRE DRAMATURGY

    The aim of the master’s degree study programme is to create qualified theatre dramaturges who will be able to perform a whole range of professional activities in theatre, as determined in our cultural context by the concept of theatre dramaturgy – i.e. the ability to bring stimuli and impulses, create short-term and long-term concepts (dramaturgical plan of the theatre season, dramaturgical orientation of the theatre), participate in the process of theatrical artefact as a co-creator of the decisive dramaturgical-direction concept of the production, to constantly analyse the individual moments of the creative process and correct the whole work on that basis, write studies, analyses, create programme articles and articles for programmes.
