Devise your vision. Develop your craft.

Built on the foundation of the previous two terms, this third term explores existing styles of acting (see curriculum). The aim is for students to discover the driving forces operating behind each domain, to find their own contemporary approaches to those styles and to provoke them to create or interpret theatre of their own making. This term is specifically focused on production, devised or directed, and presented by the ensemble. During this term students will be rehearsing a show which will be presented in Chicago prior to their individual projects.

What an incredible teacher! Paola has an incredible capacity for sharing, supporting, and challenging people and performers coming from extremely varied backgrounds, creating an environment in which learning and growth can be truly fostered.
