Didactic Approach

At CISPA, we work from the premise that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

The humanistic and holistic view of human beings is the starting point of our teaching.

Our most important didactic aim is self-reflection, – being able to understand and accept your own multifaceted nature and the innate otherness of our fellow human beings. Through this process of achieving more profound consciousness, the student enables him-/herself to act freely and unconventionally, based on his/her individual values, life view and natural creativity.

Body, mind and spirit are a whole, which we develop through theoretical insight and practical application, aided by a common terminology across the disciplines. All classes are based on a methodological approach, the aim of which is to empower the student to put specific acting techniques to artistic practice. Ultimately, the performer consciously utilises him-/herself as an artistic instrument, leaving the methodological technique to become an invisible support for human nature and our inherent creative force to flourish.

Art & Career

The performer trains to take command of both art and career

Apart from going through a highly demanding and practical acting training, the aim is for the students to become effectively equipped for both artistic and professional entrepreneurship. Not only should the performers be trained to make distinctive artistic choices, but also to take command of their own careers. The actors of the future should also be equipped to undertake project planning and managing, fundraising etc. In addition, their creativity should not be limited to artistic endeavors, but trained to think unconventionally in terms of new media, new forms of artistic expression, new funding channels, and new collaborations between the business and the arts world.

In short: the performer takes genuine ownership both artistically and professionally.

Our aim is for the training to become a BA (Honours) in Acting and we’re currently in concrete negotiations with with a European university. Please watch this space for updates. 

With a BA accreditation of the CISPA training, alumni will have endless opportunities of further academic and practical research (MA/MFA) at other national and international universities. Already, the CISPA training qualifies graduates to a series of post-graduate studies around the world within the performing arts. 

CISPA offers a training that qualifies the performer to challenge habitual thinking both in terms of art and career, and to create new ways of performing, researching, and project devising and developing.
