Student Reviews

Contemporary performance - intensity & creation
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was a part of the first generation of CPPM (Contemporary Physical Performance Making) at Estonian Academy of Music and Theater. The course was super intensive - we worked with many guest artists and it was great to work with them in a way that we did, as we were the part of their company. It allowed us to completely embrace their artistic practice. It required openness...
