What is Drama School Hong Kong?
Drama School Hong Kong is Hong Kong Theatre Company’s creative theatre training experience, designed to equip people with the technical skills needed to take their passion for theatre and performance to a new level. Whether a teenager or adult, amateur or professional, DSHK provides an exciting learning experience. We do this through expert instruction and a multi-disciplinary approach.
Who are the instructors?
Our Drama School Hong Kong instructors are industry professionals from the world of theatre, film and education. DSHK members will benefit from instruction in the core disciplines of acting, singing and dance, looking at different approaches and techniques within these areas, in order to build strong technical foundations in each.
Is there a performance?
With regular opportunities for sharing work and public production and performances in professional theatres, there are many platforms for each individual to demonstrate the skills that they have acquired at DSHK.
Why is DSHK so different?
At Hong Kong Theatre Company we are not just interested in training the performer but encouraging the art of theatre making. In addition to the staple performance skills DSHK members will be able to take advantage of technical and design tuition with visiting specialists delivering workshops throughout the year.
Building a healthy artistic environment
Experiencing the wider theatrical and artistic environment outside the studio classes is essential. Throughout the year some sessions will take the form of field trips to performances, exhibitions, theatre tours and film showings. In addition, at DSHK there will be opportunities for both members and their friends and family to come together on social and performance events; really building a sense of community within the programmes.
