The outbreak of a Covid-19 pandemic has put us in a situation we have never faced before. Not only do we have to face the struggles of a lockdown and restricted social contact but also, as acting students, we need to adjust and continue our studies mostly through online teaching. Unsure of how long the crisis’s going to last, we’ve started a discussion on how to make the most of the time we are forced to spend under lockdown.
Inspired by the fact that e-learning is being introduced in all schools across Europe we have come up with an idea for an educational and cultural exchange among theatre schools. We’ve created a platform aimed to bring teachers from different E:UTSA schools who are willing to share and stream their classes together with E:UTSA students. What a great opportunity to learn and explore art from perspectives we would never be able to get to know under regular circumstances.
You can access our timetable via this link. More details can be found in our private Facebook group.
June 22nd – 24th 2020
The Idea was born during a General Assembly in Glasgow where E:UTSA members
learned about RCS’s unique BA performance in BSL and English programme for D/deaf
people interested in becoming professional Actors. „It aims to enrich the talent pool in
the UK, whilst making training available to D/deaf artists.“ A programme such as this
one should receive attention beyond the realms of the united Kingdom. Therefore Claire
Lamont, Head of the BA Programme and Prof. Regina Guhl from the Drama department
of the University of Music, Drama and Media in Hanover (HMTMH) decided to start a
multilingual cooperation. Acting Students of both courses will work together to create
theatre, using both acoustic and signed language.
This project will be dissiminated to a a broad audience of students and teachers from 20
drama universities and academies.
The Cooperation is financed by the Ministry of Culture of Lower Saxony, Germany
with Iphigenia Taxopoulou
Part I: “Art & Ecology”: Environmental Art and Artistic Responses to the Climate Crisis
Part II: “Sustainable theatre – Green Producing”: Introducing Sustainability into Theatre-making (general framework and case studies)

During one week, they have been working together on the three topics voted by the students ‘representatives of E:UTSA:
The students quickly decided to work on a free interpretation of Shakespeares “Hamlet”. On the last day of the “Turbo” period there has been a short performance.

Each year before summer break acting students and teachers of the University of Music, Theatre and Media dedicate a week to a burning issue. For five days the actors’s workspaces host experts giving lectures or tutorials on their fields of work. Some time is dedicated to workshops devised by students. Each year this “Symposium-week” has proved to be a highly inspiring, mind-opening and joyful event for students of all grades.
For this years topic “Gender” we invite experts from the broad field of “gender studies” as well as artists, scientists and politicians. Since we decided to open the week to E:UTSA students all lectures will of course be in English language. Moreover could we host one or two experts of other European countries.

Each year, the usual weekly courses of the National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts of Paris are interrupted during one week to give place to workshops created in collaboration with 3 other national art schools.
In 2017, the Conservatoire decided to create an international workshop opened to E:UTSA students during that same week named “Turbo” and to carry on each year.
In 2018 this week runs from 19th to 24th of March 2018.
Acting, directing and dramaturgy students from EUTSA schools are invited to participate in the European “Turbo” workshop.
The directing and dramaturgy students should agree to also perform during the workshop, if the project needs more performers.
It’s a student led workshop opened to 12 acting students of the schools of E:UTSA and two acting students of the French Conservatory. Together, they will create a short performance of 20 minutes that will be presented on March 24 at the end of the “Turbo” week.
Students will be in contact before the workshop begins and a topic will be chosen.
Each EUTSA school should send the names of a maximum of two students. Please send the names latest until March 1 to Grégory Gabriel, Head of Studies at the Conservatoire: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If more than 10 students wish to register, participants will be chosen randomly.
Each school will be responsible for the travel expenses of its students, who will be hosted by French students (coach surfing).
