Course objectives
The course focuses on the acquisition of practical knowledge and skills, which serve students of cultural dramaturgy to gain a deeper understanding not only of the issues of acting, but above all to master their use in various types of cultural projects. The content of the subject is knowledge of the basics of the theory and practice of acting, its specificity, psychological, anthropological and social elements. Practical exercises are an important part: students create etudes and interpret dramatic situations. They then reflect on each exercise together and combine practical knowledge with theoretical conclusions.
