Lukáš Rieger Dramatic Acting Department

In our department, acting is perceived as a profession that requires both technical expertise and creative responsibility. The studies are based on the exploration and development of the student’s individual stage potential and its use primarily in the creation of a character. In the first semester, students engage in acting improvisations to master authentic stage existence under conditions of organic silence. In the second, they are aimed to create dramatic actions (circumstances, motivations, adaptations) within the framework of etudes with improvised text. The third explores different approaches to character composition, and the fourth examines the dependence of character creation on staging style. In subsequent semesters, students work with students of directing to prepare performances whose scope and difficulty of individual tasks gradually increase. The department’s intention is to enable collaboration with educators from other studios as well as other theatre schools.
