CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

International Platform for Performer Training

"Once Upon A Voice" - Contents and Schedules of Contemporary Theatre Education
22.1.2015 bis 25.1.2015, Zurich University of the Arts

Deadline for Proposals: 15 October 2014

organised by the Institute for the Performing Arts and Film (IPF)
and the Department for Performing Arts and Film (DDK), Zurich University of the Arts

The 2015 International Platform for Performer Training seeks to attract a cross section of European contemporary training programmes. We will discuss the current situation but also visions and developments for future teaching programmes and organizations.

The 2015 Zurich platform will engage with the following questions:

A) Curriculum. How do you create and deliver a curriculum to serve the needs of contemporary (and future) performer education for today's theatre? What are our expectations, future possibilities and how do we identify new skill sets? How important is e.g. continuity and depth in contemporary training practices?

B) Voice. How do you create future models of performer training within the field of voice and speech? What new methods of voice training might we share and experiment with?
