Theatre in Education

The Theatre in Education programme aims to help you find your way in the inspiring, wide-ranging and many-faceted practice of theatre. A theatre teacher makes theatre with people of all (cultural) groups of the population, and all age ranges. Our programme produces theatre teachers who are bold theatre-makers creating theatre presentations and productions with a great diversity of actors, young and old, at all kinds of places – not only in thea¬tre spaces but at schools and school youth theatres, art centres and other venues.

The programme partners with schools, theatre groups, cultural and educational institutions in the Netherlands and maintains connections with theatre groups in Curacao, Suriname, England, Germany, Turkey and the US.

Interdisciplinary approach
A theatre teacher naturally takes an interdisciplinary approach. As a theatre teacher you will make presentations and productions, give theatre lessons and workshops and develop educational projects based around productions. To function in the professional world, a thea¬tre teacher must be a theatre-maker who not only possesses artistic vision, but an ability to teach all aspects of the theatre.

The language of the Theatre Department is Dutch. In order to function up to the mark in the lessons, foreign students are required to learn, speak, write and read Dutch during their first year of study.
