School:University of Ottawa/Université d'Ottawa
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Field of Study:Acting
Description:The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting (BFA in Acting) is an intensive three-year program designed to train professional actors able to meet the challenges of today’s theatre. The program is composed of three axes, with the difficulty of each increasing as students progress through the curriculum. The first deals with specific acting techniques (movement, voice, diction, interpretation, sight reading, etc.) and aims to develop control and expressive potential of the body and voice, the two main tools of the actor. A second invites students to put their training into practice in a series of four public performances, directed or supervised by recognized professionals. The third offers students a solid grounding in theatre history and the analysis of theatre as a live art, giving them the theatrical culture needed to understand and contextualize their work as actors. The program concludes with courses and workshops to give future graduates the means to manage their careers and join the profession.
