Description & Review:
The ITI Acting Programme is a distinctive actor training programme. It is a three-year, full-time, systematic training programme for professional actors interested in working in contemporary theatre.
The intensive programme is grounded in an intercultural learning methodology, set to rigorous standards, to develop skills in performance and original theatre-making.
Conceived in 2000 by renowned dramatist, the late Kuo Pao Kun, and current ITI director, T. Sasitharan, it is inspired and informed by the founders’ knowledge and experience in Asian theatre and the result of consultations with an international panel of esteemed theatre-makers.
