The Theatre Performance program at Humber reflects the global nature of our cultural world.
We offer a unique, physically-based training approach to the development of theatre artists. Rigorous training in devised and original theatre is supported by foundation training in classical and contemporary approaches to text. The individual creative voice is encouraged through training in devised theatre techniques in every year of the program.
Students are taught by internationally and nationally recognized actors and actor-creators.
The foundation acting curriculum includes classical, as well as contemporary acting techniques, Shakespeare, neutral mask, clown and bouffon; movement and dance; voice, speech and singing. It also includes on-camera performance; the business of acting and audition; stage combat; playwriting; puppetry and theatre history.
Students work on and create original material in every year of the program. In the third year, the creative work culminates in a performance season guided by professional directors, designers, and stage managers.
