Teaching

DAMS - Audiovisual and theatrical production.


The aim of the Degree Course "DAMS - Audiovisual and theatrical production .  (L3)" is to train professionals able to master and apply high-level competencies within the field of audiovisual media and performing arts. The degree course mixes performing arts history, theory and practice in a stimulating manner. Furthermore, the course aims to provide specific and thorough knowledge on the culture and context of the cinema and theatre industry both from a national and an international point of view.

Modality of attendance 

The educational activities are presential, however students who meet certain requirements may also participate in live streaming, wherever they are, interacting live with the classroom.

From the first year, the learning pathway gives ample space to workshops, thus allowing the practice of technical and theoretical knowledge provided.

The degree course is made possible thanks to the competences of the teaching staff combined with those of scholars and professionals; as well as to the permanent link established by the university with the regional cultural industries and to the involvement of different thematic research centres of the university. The training course is based on a blend of theory and practice, inspired by the principle of learning by doing and the learning of important soft skills, such as teamwork, problem solving, communication skills and leadership culture.

Interests, ambitions and curiosity are at the heart of a student-friendly course, which is divided into two highly professionalised profiles: Filmmaker and Theatre Maker.

Theatre Maker

Theatre Makers are intimately related to the history of theatre and performing arts. This professional figure is able to conceive and realise artistic projects in the wide spectrum of the performing arts. In a globalised and mediatised world, the performing arts are those that encourage the encounter between living bodies and can enjoy the greatest freedom of expression.The sector of the live performance, which is strongly supported by the institutions and yet is characterized by a lively independent creation, is looking for figures who are familiar with tradition and know how to interpret new languages, delving into the techniques of theatrical and scenic writing, staging, directing and production needed to present a project. The Theatre Maker is not simply a performer, but is the creator - independently or in collaboration with other professionals - of the artistic and performing projects devised.

Solid knowledge of the humanities and practical experience enable the student to interpret and actively participate in the entire cultural sector related to the performing arts: production of performances, planning of cultural activities and events related to theatre and performance art, promotion and literacy in the languages of theatre also in the contexts of schools and the information society.

 

Career opportunities

Upon completion of the DAMS learning pathway, the Theatre Maker graduates will be able to work in various fields such as:

 

  • creation of performance projects within the field of theatre and dance 
  • dramaturgy and stage writing
  • direction and stage performance
  • independent creativity projects for the performing arts
  • production and communication of performance projects
  • creation and promotion of cultural activities related to the world of performing arts
  • promotion and marketing of initiatives of performing arts at theatres, cultural centres, museums and art galleries
  • research and study of historical archives related to the performing arts
  • artistic direction of festivals and retrospectives
  • activity of dissemination of theatre culture in research centres, theatres, festivals and media such as press, radio and TV
