How to study at a theatrical college

So, suppose you are an entrant and flasks, beakers, test tubes along with numbers and logarithms do not entice you. What do you do and where to go? Oh, you probably heard about the creative Universities, the famous “Chip” and SPBGATI.

Even if you are not an entrant, but an adult who has already taken place, do not lie at least to yourself, and honestly admit that you do not mind exchanging routine and routine for your fifteen minutes of glory and applause of the public, at least once.

Creative trends in one way or another seduce everyone, because only here you can be an astronaut, a chemist, a writer, a spy with a fatal beauty, or the most fatal beauty five times a day, while remaining famous and loved. Someone passes it in childhood, after the first overturned entrance examination, someone stops at the level of their companies and corporate competitions in production, well, someone goes for life, where a normal person and the head does not come, and namely – in art.

How does the theater go to the theater? Oh, it’s very simple and difficult at the same time.

To begin with, you must pass the entrance test. It takes place in several stages depending on the direction, but you will always read a fable, a verse, a prose to choose from, or all in a row, and during a break you will communicate for life with the admission committee. Be ready that you can not even ask about art and it will be normal.

What you see on the Abitur, before the admission committee, namely: memorizing the role, flying people, playing skits and other standing on the heads in the corridors – in a word, all this is, in no way should surprise and alarm you. If this has happened, then write is gone – you have nothing to do here. But do not be discouraged, you will not be alone in this, because according to the statistics of the 30 people who entered the workshop (and you can only learn directing and acting skills for nothing), only 10 people will reach the diploma, and even at the best.

This is for the very reason that many of those who have entered do not fully understand that the talent that they have is necessary to develop.

Master, that is, a person who has experience, passes it to his disciples. He can ask to come on Saturday and even on Sunday. And not for an hour or two. And from morning till night you will have classes with a master, and then even without it. Of course, not everyone can withstand such a pace purely physically. Try yourself seven days a week to play a chair, then the same!

Moreover, it should be understood that no one has canceled standard objects of the history type with English, but there is one nuance – the priority of the show. At the end of each semester, students should bring their skills to the public and show them to the rest of the department; if something does not fit in with the schedule of rehearsals, and the teacher of English “does not allow to create”, then the whole course can arrange a riot for him and hammer him into attending this subject. How to take it, this is another problem, but the show above all. For the sake of justice it is necessary to say that standard educators understand this and in most of their not much bother the students; in extreme cases, you can negotiate through the master.

As you already understood the course is called a workshop, because it is supervised by a master. This is very important and determines the further development of the young actor / director, that’s why in the articles about famous people on Wikipedia, it is sometimes written who was his master.

The training itself for five years is as follows:

I year

1 semester – installation. Students put sketches. It is here that chairs, socks, dumplings and other dandelions play. Here the basis of the basics is set. In the future it develops or not. Who immediately realized that this is not his – goes into the engineers of mathematics

2 semester – circus. Students learn circus art. In short, the same “Circus with the stars on the First”, only without the stars and ORT. Jonglage, clowning, illusions, a parody of the circus. This is it. Many thought that it would be easier, but can not stand the flashing of tennis balls and also leave.

II year

3 semester – fairy tales. Everyone chooses a short fairy tale, but rather a fragment of the known, and puts. This is more serious, but so that life does not seem to honey that no one runs up and does not go to do it in the corner on the principle of “everyone’s own”, the course gets one fairy tale for everyone, which will be a general course and for which you also need to take time, .

4 semester – stories. The same principle as with fairy tales, only people on the course are less, and the load is greater. The only difference is that not everyone puts a general course story, and the drama of everyone and everything should not be too serious.

III year

5 semester – musical. In short it looks like the previous work, only here it is still necessary to sing (or at least get into notes), to learn the keys and much more to “get into” the genre. If for some reason you have not left the workshop yet, this is your last chance to do it.

6 semester – a dramatic passage. In fact – this is the same story, but with more emphasis on the game and the dramatic composition. Treason, murder, suicide, aimlessly spent years, betrayal of loved ones and soul inside out, that’s it. All who wanted to – have already left, others who have failed, will be taken off the stage with a massive heart attack and so on.

IV year

7 and 8 semesters – are the preparation for the diploma course work, that is, a full two-act act with intermission in ten minutes to ventilate the hall. Depending on the studio and the orientation of the training (director, actor, director-producer, director-actor), you can make such performances from one to several. It is clear that for two semesters to do such a trick and do not recline the utopia hooves in its pure form, that is why in some courses it starts to be done already from the fifth to sixth semester and continues sometimes on the fifth, in some workshops, first stories are first put, and then tales, differently, but the first course is unchanged. It is also true that the diploma course is an admission to the surrender of one’s diploma.

V course Diploma performance. Everything is simple – every student passes his diploma performance, writes on it work on one hundred sheets and receives a diploma. Or does not receive; but more often all the same receives, because there are only those who are in the subject. Basically, this is almost the only written work for the entire period of study. In secret, many people buy this work, as they concentrate more on the creative final exam (thankfully, on the Internet, there are a lot of services for writing not only diploma papers, but also essays and a thesis writing service).

Agree the difference from the solution of the logarithms in that the result is unknown here, but this is also a charm. Everything depends on you. In art, twice two is five and eight and sixteen at the same time. And sometimes the root of the minus first degree.

Theater is a voluntary dictatorship. Only in a theatrical university can they study until 22:00, the rector can issue a decree so that after that they are driven by a broomstick, and students do not want to leave and sit until 4 am (by the way, a real fact).

Here and so. And you think that everything is simple: went out – played, staged.
