Short description
:  

The Department of Performing Arts - Acting in German Language within The Faculty of Music and Theatre at the West University of Timișoara was founded in 1992 with the main goal of training professional actors first and foremost for the German language stages in Romania – in Timișoara and Sibiu. A central role in training is played by the discovery and development of the artistic persona through improvisation exercises, staging of epic texts, increasingly difficult stage and role studies, studio staging and public shows, as well as theatrical practice. For many years there has been a close collaboration with The German State Theatre Timisoara, the German Cultural Centre Timisoara and the German Consulate in Timisoara. Professors from German speaking countries offer permanently workshops for the acting students.
