a 2 year English language program at the Department of Alternative and Puppet Theatre (KALD)

Prague, Czech Republic. 

Program Overview

The Master in Directing of Devised and Object Theatre offers advanced studies in the practice of theatre-making with a twofold focus: learning the process of devising a theatre performance from scratch, with a strong emphasis on a visuality of expression. Students will learn to create theatre performances with strong visual, spatial, object,  media (low tech) as well as participatory, documentary, immersive and political aspects, as well as working in other related performance forms such as scenographic installations, sound performances, sound walks, interactive and public space performance as well as other types of performances with non-traditional theatre settings.

The process is based in devising techniques: creating thematic, conceptual, and/or documentary projects that are not based in pre-written plays, but are created mainly through the process of rehearsing, often as collaborative work of the whole creative team.
