In this subject students gradually apply the knowledge they've acquired when studying Acting. The first phase stresses the ability to communicate with a partner in finding the optimal form of expressing the actor's theme and the relevant situation, while regularly emphasing the function of the subject, the puppet. The study leads to the formation of fairy-tale plays for the youngest viewers with an emphasis on the actor's authorial participation. Specific production projects created with students of direction-dramaturgy are the precondition for generating valuable productions both in school theatre and in site-specific projects. All production attempts and realisations are reflected on regularly during studies.
