The focus of the 3rd year of training is how, as a performer, do I obtain personal and artistic ownership of all the techniques I’ve learnt? How do I strive to become, not only a very skilled actor, but a truly creative artist? You’ll work with scenes within different performative media, and productions within different genres, collaborating with a series of experienced directors. The student practices further utilising his/her methodic tools in a confident and independent way, and he/she is encouraged and guided to cultivate an acting method that suits his/her particular artistic temperament.
The student is guided to finding a professional opportunity for apprenticeship within any performative medium (theatre, film, TV, internet, radio). The aim is for the student to gain additional professional acting experience and extending his/her network. Previous students have had their apprenticeship in as various places as Copenhagen, Odense, Holstebro, Ebeltoft, Reykjavik, New York, Cape Town and London.
The CISPA training is completed with a final production, directed by a guest director. The actors work with a modern theatre piece during a 10 week rehearsal period, resulting in a production, which is presented to an invited audience of industry members and other guests. An assessment panel, consisting of both internal and external teachers/directors and the artistic directors of CISPA, evaluate the actor’s final performance.
Subsequently, the graduating performers will receive their diploma.
