Collectively, the board of directors and the core faculty at CISPA represent many decades of performing, directing and teaching. As a central tenet of our education, these teachers (of acting technique, singing, voice, dance, movement psychology, scene study, applied theatre history, rhetoric, theatre and performance studies, etc.) work closely together across their disciplines.
Embracing different methodological traditions, that constructively challenge each other, we’ve aimed at finding a common terminology and creating cross-disciplinary continuity and coherency for the students.
Anchored in a solid sense of tradition and years of experience, our aim therefore is to continually develop our acting methods practically and theoretically in what we’ve coined Contemporary Method Acting. This practice research is constantly assessed and further developed both in the daily practice, in collaboration with students and other teachers, in teachers’ seminars, and not least by CISPA being an active part of an extensive international network of performing arts practitioners and researchers who exchange and collaborate in projects, conferences, workshops, et cetera, benefitting teachers, directors and students alike.
