Course Information

The Bachelor of Fine Arts (Theatre) provides full time immersive and rigorous, intensive studio-based training for the 21st century performer and theatre maker. The course celebrates the creative potential of the performer as a collaborative artist and prepares students to become accomplished actors and highly skilled devisors of their own work.

This course provides you with ongoing training and skills development in acting, devising, movement, voice, collaborative practice and dramaturgy to support the performance and creation of new work. You will experience a range of theatre-making provocations - solo and ensemble practice, site-specific work, applied theatre and contemporary performance. You will develop your own practice as a theatre artist informed by an understanding of historical paradigms and an application of current methodologies. There are opportunities to engage in national and international projects, including a placement with a regional company, performance in a national fringe festival season and undertaking an international study tour.

The program culminates in the creation and performance of fully produced devised works in which you will collaborate in pre-professional companies to conceive, develop, rehearse and present original works. These works are showcased to invited industry guests within a VCA Performing Arts Festival.

You will learn from highly experienced staff and collaborate in a range of theatre making contexts with invited industry professionals. There are opportunities to also collaborate throughout the course with students from other disciplines at the VCA including Visual Arts, Dance, Music Theatre, Film and Television, Acting, Writing, Directing, Dramaturgy, Voice and Production.

The Bachelor of Fine Arts (Theatre) enables graduates to enter the profession with the capacity to contribute to Australia’s theatre ecology and instigate change and leadership with clarity and skill. Graduates work at all levels of the profession and are renowned for their capacity to work creatively and collaboratively, in both independent and mainstage professional theatre as well as in community cultural development, film, television, radio, new media, and education.
