NTI IS AN EXPLORATION INTO THE DEPTHS
OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A COMPLETE
CREATE THEATER 10 HOURS A DAY, 7 DAYS A WEEK
NTI is a laboratory where you gain tangible tools while creating new work. From 9:00am to 10pm, seven days a week, you work with master teachers and create theater. This 14-week program trains you to function as a contributing member of an ensemble, invites you to find out what excites you about the art of theater, and gives you valuable skills to boldly apply that excitement and knowledge to your work. Conferring 20 credit hours, the NTI Semester is offered in the spring or fall semester.
Two weeks studying abroad in London, England, offers exposure to the culture, historical beauty, and theatrical richness of London. As an ensemble, you train daily in Lecoq techniques, mask work, improvisation, and clowning with the internationally renowned theater company Complicite. Additionally, you participate in NTI’s singular series of tours, workshops, and master classes with the U.K’s foremost theater artists.
Weekly Theater Labs challenge you to put what you are learning in class on its feet. When given just 15 hours to stage a scene, you learn to trust your creative instincts. Under the mentorship or a professional guest artist, you gain practical experience with a wealth of classical and contemporary texts.
PLAYWRIGHTS' AND LIBRETTISTS' WEEK
Playwrights and Librettists Week is dedicated to the staging of original one-act plays written, directed, designed, performed, and produced by your ensemble. This collaborative week supports and amplifies the voices of the next generation of American theater writers under the mentorship of several professional playwrights.
Theater trips to New York City as well as to prominent regional theaters such as Yale Repertory Theatre and the A.R.T. are frequently taken. These excursions often feature exclusive opportunities to learn more about the artistic process with cast and creative teams.
During Company Project, you have eight days to devise a piece of theater unique to your ensemble. Through public performances, you showcase what you have learned and what has inspired you throughout the semester.
