The programme you will embark upon is essentially a vocational course, whose principal aims are to provide a comprehensive actors training, and to equip graduates to work in the acting profession. It is also a degree programme offering successful graduates a Bachelor of Arts with Honours qualification. Full government funding is available through Student Finance England for Home and EU students.
Much of your work on this programme will be dedicated to vocal and physical training, to the exploration of a range of techniques for creating and developing character, and for working flexibly and responsively in the space. The modern actor is not just a puppet who regurgitates lines and moves for an audience, but a creative artist, using his/her inner resources to create truthful fictions and constantly seeking new ways to communicate both physically and vocally. Part of the programme will teach you to be original and individual in your work, to reinvent old techniques and develop new ones.
Italia Conti's BA (Hons) Acting Programme does not seek to mould actors to any one method or system for acting. Rather it tries to make available to its students the widest possible range of ideas and training methods, so that each student may begin to construct a personal ‘tool box’ of working, developing this throughout their life. The programme also aims to produce flexible performers who can work in as wide a range of styles and media as possible. Having said that, the programme does have underlying theories of training and performance, as well as clear philosophies about the roles of drama in society which permeates the teaching.
