And develop your potential for artistic leadership and attain in-depth knowledge of dramaturgical thinking and practices.

Collaborative learning

Students collaborate with other VCA postgraduate disciplines and engage with writers, directors, designers, choreographers, performance-makers and actors on a range of projects in an intensive training environment.
