Do you want to learn how to make theatre with a wide group of people, and to teach? In schools, on the street and at festivals about what touches you and them? Then the Theatre in Education study course is for you. We train you to become a versatile theatre-making teacher and teaching theatre maker, with a first-degree teaching qualification (Bachelor of Education). You learn how to make theatre and how to coach others in this. You design projects, classes and workshops. In short: you will be trained as a theatre teacher who is inspired by the people you work with and who can convert this into art.

Artist and educator in one

As a theatre maker you are an artist and a pedagogue in one. You work with your own fascination and that of your players. That is why the curriculum pays a lot of attention to the development of your own artistry and teaching, plus the connection between them. We train you in a wealth of theater making possibilities. The focus is on learning to make from various sources, disciplines (such as material, light, sound, costume) and playing styles.

Theatre in the here and now

We see theatre as a meeting place, a place where you can question the world. You work with themes that play out in the world around you, and you learn to translate that into theatre. So you can also find stories with the people you work with. In this way you make the connection with the world in which you now live. You develop your own and current vision on theatre and art education.
