This highly qualified vocational school, right in the centre of Hamburg, offers a 3-year training course for the performing arts. The course is recognised by the Federal Education and Training Assistance - Department for Culture. (This means that student loans for this course can be applied for). The school is inside a beautiful old, listed building - Thedehof - and is fitted with state-of-the-art technology.
An innovative team of professional artists and tutors coach our student actors. The current team of coaches is represented by the ArtriumArtCompany. This theatre company realises projects, productions, stagings, and films, as well as a wide variety of media performances. These performances are produced and presented to hit the nerve of the times. Our work takes place in the middle of Hamburg Altona, a traffic-calmed area, close to nature, sustainable and safe.
We teach the most important, classic acting methods: Stanislavski, Strasberg, M. Chekov and Meisner, modern Brecht, Grotowski und Lecoq as well as the contemporary Johnstone, S. Batson & E. Morris. On our varied and topical media course, our actors develop holistically to become confident and expressive artists.
Our actors play sophisticated drama scenes, prepare for stage and film and, step-by-step, also learn the skills for the professions related to acting such as: directing, dramaturgy, choreography, and also moderating, singing, and dance.
The Film and Drama "Bühnenreife" qualification is the final piece in the puzzle before stowing away your vita, photos, demos & website to head for your auditions at theatres, to the ZAV (Placement Services), as well as to agencies, and castings for theatre and film. Graduates can, when requested, participate in a professional class to further pave their career paths.
We are active members of the board of the state association for creative private schools and we are increasingly networked thanks to collaborations with other artistic vocational training institutes and theatres in Hamburg.

SPECIALIST SEMINAR | TALENT WORKSHOP:
Next date: First Weekend after the schools in Hamburg reopened. | What does "talent" mean in drama? How can you be perceived in your role as a "talented actor"?
At this seminar, you rehearse a character, which you have prepared, under the guidance of different tutors from Artrium. Using scenic monologues as a form of expression we work at physical presence, style of language and language quirks together with all the students at the seminar. After the seminar, if requested, you can apply for training at the Artrium at the school administration.
SPECIALIST SEMINAR | FILM ACTING:
Next date: 23.05. - 24.05.2020 | This practical seminar is a fascinating and sophisticated undertaking thanks to the professional approach towards creating scenes in front of the camera.
