Studying at “Nico Pepe”

The three-year course offers professional training that aims to fully prepare students for a career in acting-related activities. We want our students to be curious, creative, ready to listen, to explore their surroundings, determined and refined, discovering their physical and emotional intelligence, cultured, flexible and receptive, and generous towards the learning process offered in the teaching itinerary, as they will be in later life in the profession towards the public, other actors and the action process on stage.

The programme includes teaching and the development of individual skills in areas such as voice, movement and acting. In particular, the leading subjects of the three course years are as follows:

First year

Deconstruction. The first year’s work is heavily based on training: “rediscovering” the body, your own voice and awareness of your own tools of expression.
Work on group dynamics and on the fundamental basis of an actor’s work. Feed your imagination.

Second year

The second year develops techniques of expression. Construction of and relationship with the character. Emotional and physical impulses. Commedia dell’arte. An introduction to text analysis. Character composition.

Third year

Text analysis, character progression throughout the drama. Physical action. Autonomy of the actor in the composition.
