SP Drama School Regular Courses Functioning of the Pedagogical System Headquarters Others

Regular Courses

The School offers eight Regular Courses. The approach of contents indicates the idea of eight schools in one, such is the degree of artistic and pedagogical relationship between the courses.  Each course takes up to 25 people except Direction which takes 20, summing up 195 educands per school year.

The start of SP Escola de Teatro establishes the struggle for regulation of certain professions historically banished in Brazil, such as the playwright, a key figure in both modern and contemporary Brazilian theater.

In the program of studies offered, it is worth noting that courses such as Lighting, Sound Design and Stage Techniques, finally include a formal and regular education correspondent to the secondary vocational level – new concept among Brazilian Drama Schools.

- Acting

The Acting course aims training of actors-creators, covering areas of improvisation, basic and advanced techniques of voice, physical training and acting and dramatic literature analysis, creation of roles both in a classical sense as also in relation to contemporary forms of performance. The actor-creator is seen as an artist who takes full responsibility for his/her own process of development experiencing it as a way against alienation.

- Set and Costume Design

It aims training young people who are interested in the crafts of set and costume design in a professional level. The educand receives basic notions of producing a set, theater costumes and props. The Course is primarily of practical nature and to do so in addition to workshops, it articulates training programs in theaters, cultural centers, television producers and agencies. Theoretical and practical classes are supplemented by contact with other professionals already working in the industry.

- Directing

The theater-directing course focuses on preparing new directors with a wide and critical view on society and theater making. The practical activities equate the theoretical training which is an unusual equivalence in Drama Schools, academic or not, throughout the country. Another important factor is the educand's connection with the practice of other courses at the School as well as to approach of diverse possibilities of styles and means of creation such as urban interventions, animated shapes, the Italian stage and street theater.

- Playwriting

Without an equivalent course in technical or higher education in the country, it aims to awaken and enhance unique voices. It proposes the development of the educand in other modes of textual production, such as collective creation and collaborative processes. It balances theory, technique and practice, including contents that are part of the basis of creation for other media such as radio, television and the internet. It also aims at the theoretical and practical training in most recent assumptions, such as dramaturgy.

- Humor

It provides the training for comedy performers as well as comedians for the performance arts. It transits through archetypes and characters and invests in the search of each artist for his/her unique dramaturgy. It sees the actor-creator who thinks his/her work in a social context and understands the historical dimension of the social role of laughter. In general, the comedian becomes a comedian away from the academic realm in an apparent creative autonomy. Now humorists are generalized as pure entertainment. It is from this conflict that the course emerges, opening up spaces for expressions of new trends, experiencing a strong base of knowledge that is already traditional, but not yet systematized.

- Lighting Design

Its objective is to train technicians with a broader knowledge, beyond the specific contents of the field. It intends to train autonomous, investigative and critical creators who understand the meaning of teamwork. One of the foundations is to bring together technology and craftsmanship, highlighting the educand's creativity. It promotes good communication with key areas such as visual arts, cinema and music. Emphasis in the Experiment in order to educate the sight of the "artist of light."

- Sound Design

The course addresses knowledge that stimulates communication through sound. It offers possibilities for the educand to create his/her soundtrack, which can be produced live or recorded, using the means of sound production, like music, noise or voice. This concept, applied initially to the theater, will also be experienced through cinema, radio, television and other media, offering thus a broader view on sound design. It explores expressive variants of sound, whether real or imaginary, recreating sets, objects or characters.

- Stage Techniques
An innovative, brand new course that fills one of the major gaps in Brazilian theater industry. Provides training to stage technicians to work in theater as set builder, prop maker, flyman and stage managers. The idea is not to restrict their knowledge to the instrumental content of their area but also to gain a wide perspective of all the elements involved in a show. Looking at the educand first as a human being and then as a professional.
