Intensive advanced training for actors and performers alongside rigorous academic study and performance research. The Actor and Performer Training degree is offered at Rose Bruford College.


What you'll study

The MA/MFA Actor and Performer Training from Rose Bruford College is a practice-based programme for those seeking intensive advanced training as actors and performers alongside rigorous academic study and performance research.

The programme focuses specifically on actor/performer training, theatre creation, performative writing, informed critical reflection and practice research. The uniqueness of the programme lies in the way it seeks to integrate traditional text-based conservatoire training and practices with the physical collaborative approach that has grown out of Eastern and Central Europe over the last 60 years.

The MA/MFA includes an expedition which offers a unique context for learning and ethnographic and cultural research.
