Teaching and research in Theatre Arts
We are Näty – a community of professionals concerned with actor training and the study of theatre arts in Tampere University.
Our training and reasearch combine artistic, professional and social points of view.
Trainer of versatile artist
In our Degree Programme for Theatre Arts, we provide training and teaching for two classes at a time. This means that student selections take place either every two or three years.
The starting point of NÄTY’s teaching is an appreciation of the actor as a thinking, creative artist. We see the acting profession as a constantly changing process that gains new forms and changes throughout its life.
Dialogue of art and research
Our entire teaching staff also engages in research. Through research collaboration, we strengthen the dialogue between arts and sciences and make research visible, also outside the university.
Our research orientation is international. We maintain a longstanding partnership with Coventry University, focusing on the research of telepresence in performance training and the performing arts.
A future actor is a global citizen with the ability to function in diverse cultures and environments, and internationality is what defines NÄTY’s activities. Students are encouraged to implement their own international projects and supported in their participation in international events, such as festivals. Our most important partner is the Norteas network, composed of theatre and drama schools in the Nordic and Baltic countries.
