The Professional Training Program (PTP) is a one-year program for those ready to undertake a journey into the realms of actor-created theater. Situated in the majestic redwoods on the California coast, Students have the opportunity to study in a natural environment like no other.
This year of study includes training in the FM Alexander Technique, physical awareness and responsiveness, vocal and movement improvisation, as well as the study of mask, clown, melodrama, and commedia dell’arte, with ongoing research into the process of making theatre. Investigation of theatre dynamics, the actor and the space, character and relationship takes place through assignments presented weekly in Performance Lab. Certificate granted upon completion.
This program is open to all performers, with or without a college degree.
