This course in three years offers you the tools and the key knowledge to situate yourself in the first line of the performing arts industry.

Text interpretation studies are aimed at all those people interested in acquiring the knowledge and qualifications necessary to develop their professional activity as interpreters, actors or actresses, in any discipline of performing arts and drama (theater, cinema, television, etc.). As an ESART student you will benefit from innovative collaborations with other school grades, including Music, Dance and Management and Production.

ESART is an interpretation school that focuses on singularity and for training artists with professional skills. All our teachers are active professionals who combine their scenic activity with teaching, so that the student is always in touch with the reality of the sector. We integrate in the program production and preparation classes for access to the profession from all points of view, so that the self-management and realization of the projects themselves becomes a primary objective; along with the development of pieces, scenes and creations of relevant texts from all stages of the history of theater.

The curriculum of the degree in interpretation is divided into three courses. In the first theater course, the performing arts industry is studied, emphasizing the professional development of the actor / actress, acting classes, body and voice expression and creation of theatrical pieces. In addition, these studies are complemented with singing classes, contemporary dance and acting in front of the camera. In the second year, we continue to make progress on everything learned in the first year and add disciplines such as acting with mask, classical acting and physical theater. Third is the course dedicated to the student himself exploring and creating his future. In this sense the context is worked on the performing arts, the interpretive skills and a professional production theater project.

This degree is awarded by Bath Spa University (United Kingdom).
